IndieGoGo Acquires Distribber, Expands Reach
By STEVE POND
IndieGoGo, a web-based fundraising platform for film, video and charity projects, has acquired the digital distribution service Distribber, which will give independent filmmakers access to iTunes, Amazon and Netflix Instant.
“It’s really an opportunity for us to create an entire suite of tools,” says Slava Rubin, one of the co-founders of the two-year-old IndieGoGo.
“We kept hearing from our customers that they loved our fundraising tools, that we really helped them on that end,” he says. “But they told us that they were hitting a wall when they finished their projects and started looking for distribution.”
