On last week's episode of The CrowdCrowd, Seed & Spark founder Emily Best brought the crowdfunding platform Patreon to our attention. Patreon has some news of its own this week, and Tubefilter's Sam Gutelle has the details:
Patreon, a site launched back in May, also allows YouTube creators to set up regular fundraising drives to fuel their videos. The brainchild of YouTuber Jack Conte, Patreon has big plans of its own; Conte just raised more than $2 million in venture capital, which will help him bring the system of patronage to the forefront of the online video space.
Expect even more platforms and models to show up in the coming months. Heck, if you could see my inbox right now…
