Join us on August 4th at 6:30 pm as Indiegogo’s hardware expert, Evan Cohen, educates and empowers makers about crowdfunding. Learn from his experiences so you, too, can properly launch a campaign. Presentation will be followed by Q/A session.
Evan Cohen joined Indiegogo in 2014 to help educate and empower the growing maker community on the east coast of the United States. He works out of Indiegogo’s New York office, where he regularly engages in community events to help local technologists connect with the Indiegogo platform.
Prior to joining Indiegogo, Evan spent three years as a television producer and broadcast engineer, working on productions for Jimmy Kimmel Live, The United Nations World Food Programme, and Travel Channel. As a producer, Evan contributed to a number of incredible productions that have been watched by millions of people around the world.
Evan holds a Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and is an avid world traveler who has visited nearly 30 different countries.
Indiegogo is a way for people all over the world to join forces to make ideas happen. Since 2008, millions of contributors have empowered hundreds of thousands of inventors, musicians, do-gooders, filmmakers – and many more – to bring their dreams to life.
