For those you that don’t know – Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world!
What does this mean? Well, if you have a cool/new/innovative idea for a project (such as a book, movie, art installation, video game) Kickstarter is where you can go and get funded. You set the funding goal, provide the project details, and then watch as individuals from all over the world ban together and pledge money to help make your dream project a reality!
Who knows, you could be funding the next Tarantino…
Take graFighters for example. They are an up-and-coming gaming company that describes themselves as having the “first online fighting game for your hand drawn characters”. Despite missing their $20k target on Kickstarter, they recently raised $200k! Do you know where the investor learned about graFighters? Kickstarter!
So, even though you may not reach your Kickstarter target, there may be a very large private investor lurking in the clouds and waiting to give your project wings!
