@karen_bliss: @MollyNeuman, Kickstarter’s First Head of Music, Explains the Company’s Approach to the Industry

An underreported story from 2016:

Molly Neuman, the former drummer of foundational riot grrl band Bratmobile and a co-owner of the now-defunct but highly influential Bay Area label Lookout! Records, departed her most recent role, as interim head and vice-president of the American Association of Independent Music (A2IM) for the new position at Kickstarter. According to statistics from the company, tens of thousands of creative projects have been funded since the platform’s launch, drawing the backing of more than 10 million people around the world. Neuman says music projects have been the most successfully funded projects with over 22,000 to date.
