Erin Erenberg is an agent and the Director of Crowdfunding for WME|IMG, the global leader in entertainment, sports and fashion. In her role, Erenberg advises the company’s clients on all matters related to crowdfunding, from signing clients like LeVar Burton, Rooster Teeth and Goldie Blox, to ensuring the success of all client projects she oversees. Since joining WME in 2013, Erenberg has advised over a dozen campaigns across Indiegogo and Kickstarter, including Geek & Sundry’s Tabletop Season 3, which at the time broke the record for web series at $1.4M and paved the way for a number of successful web series initiatives. With an overall success rate of 100% for campaigns she leads, Erenberg has helped clients raise over $1M in the last quarter of 2015 alone. Examples include Rachel Brathen (@yoga_girl) raising over $430,000 to launch a yoga and wellness platform (oneOeight), Derek Muller beginning production for a magnetic molecular modeling kit by raising over $519,000 (Snatoms), and Academy Award nominee Amanda Micheli seeding funding for a documentary about infertility (HAVEABABY). Before joining WME, Erenberg was employee number six at Indiegogo, where she ran business development and business affairs and was a vital part of the management team as the company rapidly expanded. Prior to Indiegogo, she served as Executive Director of the Academy of Country Music's charitable arm, ACM Lifting Lives. There, she produced performances for the show’s CBS broadcast in order to raise awareness and funding for music-related charities and more than quadrupled both fundraising and grant-giving initiatives. Erenberg is a licensed attorney who once practiced Intellectual Property law and assisted clients from Bank of America to SESAC. She began her career at Austin's Trilogy Software.Hide the rest
