It seems like just yesterday that we introduced Go Time to the Indiegogo community. Since its launch, the biweekly podcast has featured a variety of guests, recorded live from the CES show floor, covered the generosity of #GivingTuesday, given away Season 1 of Con Man and more. Hosted by Director of Business Development Bret Harris, we’ve loved having the chance at an intimate look behind the scenes of some of Indiegogo’s most successful campaigners. We’re wrapping up Season 1 of Go Time with an interview with Flow Hive, the most successful Indiegogo campaign of all time, and a live recording with the Liberman brothers, two men who escaped the Russian government after sharing their idea for transparent banking.
You might remember Flow Hive, the revolutionary beehive invention that raised more than $12 million last year. We sat down with Cedar Anderson, founder of Flow Hive, to talk about how they were able to build a Facebook community of hundreds of thousands of followers, creating viral videos on cell phones, manufacturing challenges, working with family and dealing with crowdfunding super-stardom.
The Liberman Brothers and Transparent Banking
As we wrap up Season 1 and look forward to Season 2, we’re exploring different topics and types of interviews to help create a full picture of the crowdfunding industry, from concept to market. In this season’s finale, we recorded live with Russian-born engineers and product designers Daniil and David Liberman to talk about their idea of transparent banking. These two brothers have created a service for transparent public finance called Frank, which showcases all transactions publicly.
Don’t miss this pivotal episode of Go Time, where the Liberman brothers share how they escaped the KGB, lived out of their suitcases and traveled the world to stay under the radar, all to launch Frank.
Season 1 of Go Time was an amazing opportunity for us to get to know our campaigners and share their personal experiences with the world. In Season 2, we’ll explore the trials and tribulations of bringing crowdfunded projects to life. Ever wondered where your money is going after a campaign has been funded? Stay tuned for Season 2 of Go Time!
