About Kickstarter

Kickstarter is the world's largest funding platform for creative projects. Every week, tens of thousands of people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, games, fashion, food, publishing, and other creative fields. Since April 2009, more than one and a half million people have pledged over $185 million to projects by creators who always maintain full ownership and complete creative control of their work. Kickstarter has hosted projects from Academy Award winners, New York Times best-sellers, Pulitzer Prize finalists, and other luminaries, but the vast majority of projects are from people just like you—creative ideas that a person and their community bring to life. Some are big, some are small. Some are serious, some are whimsical. All are welcome.

- Kickstarter is the world's largest funding platform for creative projects.
  + More than 1.75 million people have backed projects
  + More than $185 million has been pledged
  + More than 20,000 successfully funded creative projects

- Kickstarter is for the funding of specific works that have clearly defined goals and expectations that serve a creative purpose. There are other places on the internet to fund for charity or awareness campaigns, Kickstarter believes creativity deserves its own space.

- Creators retain creative control and 100% ownership of their idea on Kickstarter; we're part of and contributing to a larger movement of creative independence by empowering creators to create on their own terms.

- Running a project on Kickstarter is as much about building an audience and engagement as it is about securing funding. Projects bring artists and audiences closer together.

- Kickstarter is not about investment and it’s not about donation — there’s always a value exchange between creators and the backers that pledge financial support to a project. The Kickstarter economy stands at the intersection between commerce and arts patronage. In exchange for pledging, backers receive creative rewards, one of a kind experiences and behind-the-scenes access to the creative process as the project comes to life.

- The process of making the thing itself is what backers are funding on Kickstarter. Often the thing being created doesn't even exist yet when a backer pledges to a project.
