Founded to Empower Innovation
Our founders were inspired to create USCROWDFUNDING based on their own experiences trying to make ideas come to life. Danae Ringelmann produced a play but couldn’t get funding to take it to the next level. Eric Schell struggled to fundraise for a Chicago theater company. Slava Rubin tried to raise funds to find a cure for Multiple Myeloma, the disease that killed his father. Then, they had an idea. They could use the internet to bring people together to empower innovation.
Danae, Eric, and Slava founded USCROWDFUNDING in 2008 because they believed that you should choose the ideas that come to life. You and your fellow innovation seekers should get to change the world. It’s time to start discovering the next big idea.
