Alex Daly

The Crowdsourceress

Alex is the founder of Vann Alexandra, a creative services agency that gets projects financed through crowdfunding, and the industry’s “Crowdsourceress,” a name she received in the press for her expertise in crowdfunding. Her clients include Neil Young, Oscar-winning filmmakers, Pentagram designers, author Eric Ries, and TLC, the best-selling female group of all time. Alex has served on panels at top film festivals and universities, is in the class of 2016’s Forbes 30 under 30, and will get her first book published in 2017 by PublicAffairs, an imprint of Hachette Book Group.

Before transitioning into crowdfunding Alex was a producer and production manager; her films have been selected by the world’s most prestigious festivals including Sundance and Tribeca. Before that, she was a journalist for numerous publications, including New York magazine and SPIN, as well as the sole researcher for WSJ. magazine. Alex graduated from Vanderbilt University, where she double majored in Spanish and Philosophy, minored in film, and earned her honors thesis on Existentialism in Contemporary Drug Cinema.
