Josef Holm is one of the leading minds in the crowdfunding world. He launched the crowdfunding site TubeStart for YouTube creators to monetize their content. He also founded Crowdfunding.biz, a networking and news site for the crowdfunding community. Josef’s latest project is Krowdster, a tool to help crowdfunders build networks, followers and ultimately backers.
Josef explains, “Big data can help optimize a campaign page based on real success metrics and it can help crowdfunders connect with targeted, engaged supporters.”
