Making a Difference While Making a Profit
Former CEO and Cofounder, Kickstarter
Cofounder, The Creative Independent
Kickstarter has not only changed the landscape—our very lexicon—around funding, patronage, and entrepreneurship, but it’s also remained as a steadfastly ethical company: an organization with a true moral compass that blends artistic vision with street-cred cool. Hear how three creative people built a business that would define a generation by being passionately idealistic, deeply generous, and never, ever selling out. Rediscover the enormous benefits doing good for the community, and your own employees. Yancey offers sage advice for association leaders on executing on your own terms, hiring people with the same values, creating a vibrant and diverse corporate culture, and scaling growth while ensuring sustainability.
