James has been pushing the group-funding envelope since 2007.
Before co-founding Crowdtilt, he studied Development Economics in undergrad and then went on to build dvelo.org, a site for group-funding poverty-alleviation organizations in developing countries.
James hopes that people will eventually use Crowdtilt to change the world. But for now, he’s totally ok with them using it to facilitate late-night parties and tailgates.
