The amazing Perry Chen–fellow TED Fellow, CEO and co-founder ofÂ Kickstarter,Â recently named by Fast Company as one of the 100 most creative people in the world, gallery founder, visual artist and Brooklyn Bourbon Bloody Mary connoisseur–will be landing in Mexico in a couple of hours.
I will be doing a public Q&A with Perry at the GiraTelmexHub MÃ©rida conference–organized by our friends fromÂ SalÃ³n–about Kickstarter: the biggest crowdsourced funding platform for creative ventures which has been a huge and fascinating paradigm shift: and it is now pulling in over 1 million dollarsÂ a weekÂ for people in fields such as music, film and design, plus has also been called “an amazing lab for daring prototypes and ingenious products.”
So seÃ±or Perry: welcome.
Super excited to have you here, and taco, and tequila, and MÃ©rida, and Mexico City.
