Every week since its inception, Smarter Upstarter has tweeted a “Kickstarter of the Week”. We’ve been big fans of the site since the beginning, so we’re psyched that Cofounder Yancey Strickler will be speaking at this week’s WIRED Business Conference .
Mr. Strickler has a great story, having started as a music journalist with Spin and The Village Voice before launching Kickstarter. He’s got a great Tumblr blog and Twitter feed. And his company is defining the creative economy, with over $175M raised for independent artists, inventors, authors, and other creators. If you’re going to the event it’ll be easy to catch Mr. Strickler’s Q&A, he’s going on right after this guy.
Who are you most excited to hear from at the WIRED Business Conference? Tell us below and follow @WIREDBiz.
