Austin, We Have A Solution: Crowdfunded Spaceships

Bre DiGiammarino, the Head of Cause at Indiegogo and the SpaceIL team will share their insights from crowdfunding the first ever Israeli moon mission. The SpaceIL team, a contestant for the Google Lunar X Prize, is building the world's smallest spacecraft at 38 inches tall, about the size of a dishwasher. SpaceIL turned to Indiegogo, the world's largest crowdfunding platform, to connect with a global community of like-minded supporters.
