In crowdfunded markets, anyone can propose an idea and bring it to life by harnessing funding and wisdom from a community of backers. Breakaway successes on platforms such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo have demonstrated how powerful crowdfunding can be, and the scale of impact it can have on traditional media. Anindya Ghose, NYU professor and Director of the NYU Center for Business Analytics, shared his insights from his analysis of a massive dataset of more than 1 trillion observations that map both investor and entrepreneur behavior during NYC Media Lab's Research Summit 2013.
This presentation was made at NYC Media Lab's Research Summit 2013 on September 19, 2013 at the Joseph Urban Theater at Hearst Tower. The Summit was a half-day deep dive into the Lab, featuring presentations and discussion on technologies and trends that are changing the industry. Corporate members also unveiled the results of NYC Media Lab's first round of seed research projects.
