When it comes to total dollars raised, Kickstarter is still the crowdfunding leader, with more than $2.5 billion in pledges. But Indiegogo, which has always been a big player in the field, is turning more heads than ever these days.
Indiegogo has raised more than $1 billion since 2008 across 690,000 campaigns and 11.5 million contributions. More than 175,000 campaigns ran on the site last year alone, with more than 2.5 million people making contributions toward a $300 million total. And that included some of the biggest campaigns in Indiegogo's history.
It is not easy to succeed with a crowdfunding campaign, but when they strike a chord with the audience, they can be financial blockbusters. Here's a look at Indiegogo's biggest wins.
