We are excited and thrilled to introduce Becky Center as our new Chief Executive Officer!
Becky joins Indiegogo from healthcare technology startup HealthJoy, where she was the Vice President, Head of Product Management and General Manager of Growth. Center built out HealthJoy’s upselling and cross-selling strategy, launched several revenue-generating product lines, and led corporate partnerships. Becky also spent nearly a decade at Groupon, where she held numerous positions, including Chief of Staff to the CEO and General Manager of Groupon Coupons, a multi-million dollar affiliate marketing platform.
Becky’s unique combination of business acumen, technical expertise, and cross-functional team leadership will be instrumental to Indiegogo’s growth and category expansion initiatives and continue to evolve our crowdfunding platform to support entrepreneurs through their business lifecycle, from the ideation phase through production to scale:
“This is an extremely exciting time in our space where we are seeing a lot of macro trends converge and the opportunity is there for us to innovate and grow as a platform,” Becky shares. “Over the past few years, Indiegogo has deeply focused on creating a best in class experience primarily in our tech and innovation category, and we are now well positioned to extend our industry leading expertise to creating premium experiences across our other categories and services.”
“We are honored and excited to have found such a sharp, driven, and empathic leader to chart new waters for Indiegogo and the industry-at-large,” Indiegogo co-founder and board member Danae Ringelmann says. “Becky’s extensive experience leading cross-functional teams in service of the diverse and ever-evolving needs of entrepreneurs of all sizes, in combination with her astute ability to distill and weave nuanced and inclusive insights into new novel tech-driven solutions make Becky uniquely qualified to lead Indiegogo and drive innovation forward.”
In her spare time, she is a yoga enthusiast and occasional runner, who spends most of her free time with her young family doing crafts or baking together. Recently through the pandemic, Becky picked back up her childhood hobby of oil painting, which she is loving.
Join me in giving Becky a warm welcome to the Indiegogo community of crowdfunding entrepreneurs, creators, and backers!
