Kickstarter has forever changed the way money is raised by offering creative ventures the possibility to directly attract, engage and inspire donors on a grassroots, web-based platform.


Kickstarter is an online platform used for funding creative projects. These projects can range from indie films and music pieces, to journalistic investigations and food-related projects. Some projects are created by already-established artists who are looking to engage with the arts and with audiences in a new way, while others are the work of less well-known creative minds who have great ideas and supportive networks. Project creators can help to inspire people to contribute funding to their work by offering products, benefits, and exciting artistic experiences via the Kickstarter platform.
