Many of you have probably heard about the famous crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. For those of you that have not, Kickstarter provides a platform for creators and allows users to back up and explore amazing new projects ideally in the technology industry including cultural, artistic, gaming, film, gastronomic industries etc. The Kickstarter community has helped over tens of thousands of big and small creative projects and made original ideas come to life. Since their launch in 2009, 11 million people have successfully funded 111,331 projects on Kickstarter. The main objective of a Kickstarter campaign is to raise funds, however it also allows creators to improve their product-market fit. Using Kickstarter campaigns can also work wonders as a PR tool: successful campaigns are talked about worldwide in media outlets.
