Kickstarter CEO

Hosted by and

Kickstarter co-founder and CEO Yancey Strickler talks with Kim Masters about the overriding mission of the company and his hopes for the future. Since it launched five years ago, more than six million people have donated over $1 billion to fund more than $63,000 projects. Strickler addresses some of the criticisms that the company has endured in the face of certain projects -- namely the Zach Braff movie and the Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset. Strickler also addressed accusations of censorship that were raised by a documentary filmmaker making a movie about a convicted abortion doctor. Ultimately he champions the goal of getting the public to support a creator's vision whether or not a given project proves to be a financial success.
