Crowdfunding site Indiegogo, launched in 2008, was a pioneer in helping anyone anywhere raise money from anyone in the world. While the site now has much more competition from venture-backed startups such as Kickstarter or niche sites such as CrowdSupply, Indiegogo has recently seen an uptick in high profile journalism-related campaigns. There was the “Crackstarter” campaign (ironically using a play on “Kickstarter” on Indiegogo) by Gawker to raise money for a video allegedly showing the Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack. Activists tried to counter the Koch brothers by raising money in a quixotic campaign to buy the Tribune Company for $660 million. And literary publisher Graywolf Press raised money to launch a new website.
