About The Speaker


Tilt founder James Beshara has been deeply focused on collaborative funding and the opportunity it presents for global development since 2007. Before co-founding Tilt in 2012, he studied Development Economics, and went on to become a research fellow in Africa. Through his undergraduate research and work experience, James developed a strong belief in the potential for civic crowdfunding, envisioning a world that could be positively transformed through the power of shared resources and collective action.

James believes that crowdfunding is the next layer of the social web, and built the Tilt platform to give people an easy and highly social way to organize and collaborate financially -- Whether it's renting a boat with friends, a tailgate for Saturday's big game, sending the Jamaican Bobsled team to the Olympics, a mayoral race, or protecting a community from rising crime, Tilt has powered it all.

Today, Tilt is growing by 41% month over month on college campuses and will be in 9 countries by the end of the year. It's consistently on various "best places to work" lists, it is one of only 2-3 companies that Andreessen Horowitz has led multiple rounds in, and at only 3 and a half years is leading the charge of a new generation of crowdfunding apps built for a mobile world.
