Featured Speaker: Everette Taylor on Funding Dreams
We live in a world where the playing field isn’t equal based on socio-economic, race, gender, and financial means. Yet, Kickstarter is a platform to create as close as possible, an even playing field to make your dreams a reality. This is the mission of Everette Taylor, the new CEO of the crowdfunding platform. He grew up in Richmond, VA and even without graduating college, became an entrepreneur turned CMO of Artsy to now CEO of Kickstarter. This is a conversation on the importance of power and resources and a use case study from Issa Rae to Peloton to speak to the future of creators looking to break through. It will also take a look at how Everette is aiming to change how we build diverse teams and embracing non-traditional paths.
