Join Us When Indiegogo Goes Sundancing Once Again!



Though headquartered in San Francisco, Indiegogo can actually count its birthplace as Park City, Utah. Five years ago this January, Indiegogo launched at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival — beginning a legacy of supporting independent filmmakers and helping to bring crowdfunding into the public eye.

In the five years since, we still love film and have extended far beyond it — crowdfunding everything from a baby to a mosque to a Tesla museum — and we’re exciting to be going back to Sundance to celebrate our 5th birthday!

This year, our co-founder and CEO, Slava Rubin, will be joined by Indiegogo’s resident film geeks, Brad Wyman and John T. Trigonis, for two data-driven and best-practice-filled events tailored specifically for filmmakers. If you’re going to be at Sundance and you’re new to crowdfunding or have already run a campaign, this is a great opportunity to up your crowdfunding game and meet key members of the Indiegogo team and community.

Each of our two events will include a special guest — and we’re throwing a party at our panel on Monday, January 21st! Join us for crowdfunding know-how and drinks on us.
