Welcoming Kickstarter Fellow Fabrice Nadjari

Today, I’m happy to announce the appointment of Fabrice Nadjari as our newest Kickstarter Fellow.

Originally from Paris, Fabrice trained as an engineer and a sociologist, specializing in innovation. He then pursued a globe-spanning career as an independent creator and entrepreneur — with his work taking him to places like Bolivia, Bhutan, and the Central African Republic. In 2011, he and a childhood friend set off for Afghanistan, where they shot a photography project documenting the lives of a nomadic tribe in the country’s remote Wakhan corridor. The work caught the attention of the United Nations, earned Fabrice an Emmy nomination, and won accolades from National Geographic.

Today Fabrice combines his love of culture, creativity, and innovation, helping organizations like UNESCO, the International Center of Photography, and American Ballet Theater bring their work to life through visual storytelling. As a Kickstarter Fellow, Fabrice will work with me to expand our Creators-in-Residence program, to create compelling localized content in various international markets, and to develop new ideas that engage creators across Kickstarter, Drip and The Creative Independent.

Our Kickstarter Fellows program is still new. Each Fellow’s tenure and scope is designed to bring their unique expertise to life on a flexible timeline, but they all share a common interest in empowering creators to create. As our first Fellow, I spent a few months last year helping to launch Drip. We’re now excited to learn as we go and develop the program further. In the meantime, please join us in welcoming Fabrice!
