The latest installment of Billboard‘s Q&A series “Corner Office” catches up with an executive watching over many new corners: Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler. In January, the 35-year-old Strickler and co. moved into a huge 29,000-square-foot space in Brooklyn, taking over what was once a pencil factory.
As Strickler told Dorothy Hong, the office aspect of things also played a part in a recent media parody of Kickstarter:
“We’ve been parodied by The Daily Show, Portlandia, The New Yorker… But South Park is an honor. I like to think it’s a signifier of our cultural relevance. Also, they had startlingly realistic interpretations of our office, so I commend them on their research.”
The Strickler Q&A is a good example of the broadening scope of Billboard‘s content. In the month of August, billboard.com hit a new all-time high in comScore monthly uniques: 13 million. Read the rest of the “Corner Office” conversation here.
