About speaker:

Yancey Strickler is cofounder and CEO of Kickstarter, the world's largest funding platform for creative projects, raising nearly $2.5 billion in its short history.

Under Strickler’s leadership, Kickstarter has become a Public Benefit Corporation, a designation which means the company must consider not only its financial obligations to shareholders, but also its impact on society. As part of its corporate charter as a PBC, Kickstarter donates 5 percent of its aftertax profits to arts education groups and organizations fighting systemic inequality. 

Yancey Strickler serves on the board of New Inc., the New Museum's incubator for art, design, and technology. He has been named one of Fast Company's Most Creative People , listed among Vanity Fair's New Establishment, and received a Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Award from the Tribeca Film Festival.

Prior to Kickstarter, Strickler worked as EditorinChief of eM usic and has written for The Village Voice, New York Magazine, Pitchfork, and other publications.
