Proving that finance doesn't need gatekeepers.

FORTUNE -- Fortune's Brainstorm Tech Conference (July 22-24 in Aspen, Colo.) regularly brings together the best and brightest minds in tech innovation. Each week, Fortune turns the spotlight on a different conference attendee to offer his or her own personal insight into business, tech, and entrepreneurship. This week, we asked Indiegogo co-founder Danae Ringelmann to answer 10 questions about life outside of work, the company she admires most, and industry advice for young entrepreneurs. Her responses follow.
