ieCrowd Joins Indiegogo for "Drinks with Social Entrepreneurs"
ieCrowd CEO Amro Albanna recently joined Indiegogo for their Social Innovation Happy Hour - a networking event designed to talk about social innovation, which is at the heart of ieCrowd's mission.
Indiegogo Co-Founder Danae Ringelmann moderated a conversation among social innovators to address questions from attendees. Panelists included Mr. Albanna along with Lisa Curtis, Founder and CEO of Kuli Kuli, and Tom Lambot, Head of Engineering at rLoop.
In their post about the event, Indiegogo says, “At a time when mosquitoes are in the news so frequently, it’s inspiring to see how ieCrowd and their Indiegogo backer community cared deeply enough about this product when the campaign ran in 2013 that now it’s a real option for repelling bites in the near future. To make this possible for products like Kite, Indiegogo’s InDemand is designed to support entrepreneurs in raising funds even beyond the term of their initial campaign.”
ieCrowd looks forward to continued work with Indiegogo to further expand the ieCrowd and Kite community.
