Indiegogo Co-Founder Slava Rubin Joins Speaker Lineup at Global Crowdfunding Convention

An advocate of entrepreneurs, innovators and artists seeking funding to fuel their visions to fruition, GCC World is honored to welcome Slava Rubin as a featured speaker.


Las Vegas, NV -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2016 -- Before Kickstarter had its kickoff and GoFundMe got its start there was Indiegogo. And Slava Rubin was there to make it happen. It's an irrefutable fact that Indiegogo is a major force in the crowdfunding industry not only for its impressive history but also the Indiegogo team's ongoing innovation in making crowdfunding easier and more approachable to everyone. While Indiegogo is no stranger to the annual Global Crowdfunding Convention (GCC world) in Las Vegas, Slava Rubin's addition to the speaker lineup is something truly special.

That's because Mr. Rubin brings energy and insight to the ever-evolving crowdfunding industry. As a frequent guest on the giants of business media including Bloomberg, CNBC and Fox Business among others, his singular talent of turning the fluid flow of crowdfunding ideas and initiatives into a concrete set of core concepts has educated millions of people across the world.

"This year´s Global Crowdfunding Convention promises to be the most comprehensive educational event of the year. We invite you to join us and learn how to crowdfund your ideas and causes successfully, meet angel investors and industry leaders, and learn how to take your startup to the next level with crowdfunded investments." says Founder & Executive Producer Ruth E Hedges one the world's foremost authorities on crowdfunding and one of the original pioneers of the crowdfunding legislation that was ultimately signed into law in the JOBS Act on April 5, 2012.

Slava Rubin will be joining a cavalcade of crowdfunding superstars who represent the fields of law, accountancy, marketing, public relations and consultancy as well as veteran crowdfunders who have raised millions of dollars thanks to crowdfunding. In as much as Ms. Hedges put the wheels in motion to make The Global Crowdfunding Convention a reality, no small amount of credit is due to Douglas S. Ellenoff and his firm Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP who have been substantial sponsors of GCC World since day one.

The 5th Annual Global Crowdfunding Convention runs from October 15th through 17th at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Tickets are on sale at many price points and exhibit space is still available.
