Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform focused on creativity that helps bring creative projects such as picture books, film, music, art, theater, games, comics, design, photography, and more to life. It’s an All Or Nothing model. If the project does not reach its funding goal, the donors do not make a payment.
This is a different model from another crowdsourcing platform, Indigogo, which gives you the money that was pledged even if you don’t reach your goal. Indigogo is more focused on entrepreneurs for early adopters and innovation seekers to find new tech before it hits the mainstream.
