PR WEB [Video] Digital identity solution-provider ID.me has announced a partnership with Indiegogo, the world’s largest crowdfunding platform. Using ID.me’s Troop ID technology, the first digital ID card for service members and veterans, veterans and military spouses who wish to raise funds on Indiegogo are now able to prove their military affiliation to potential contributors on Indiegogo while saving money through Indiegogo’s military and veteran discount.

Indiegogo is an online platform where aspiring entrepreneurs seeking to raise money can create fundraising campaigns, tell their story and solicit funds from the public in exchange for certain services or goods, such as the product idea proposed in the campaign. Curious users may also use Indiegogo to discover what others are passionate about and learn how to get involved. Indiegogo is a global platform with users in over 200 countries working together to bring new projects to life. Starting today, military members and veterans who create campaigns on Indiegogo will be able to raise funds at discounted rates provided they complete a verification process with ID.me.
“We started Indiegogo with the mission to empower as many people as possible around the world to fund the projects that matter to them,” said Slava Rubin, CEO and co-founder of Indiegogo. “We’re proud to partner with ID.me to help veterans and service members gain access to contributors from across the globe who can make their ideas become a reality.”

ID.me co-founder and CEO Blake Hall, a veteran entrepreneur in his own right, observed, “Data from the Small Business Administration shows that veterans are, on average, more likely to become entrepreneurs and that they are more likely to be successful as entrepreneurs when compared to their civilian peers. This data, juxtaposed against the high unemployment rates for Post 9-11 veterans, suggests that Indiegogo is the perfect platform to facilitate positive change for the military and veteran community.”
