6 Most Successful Kickstarter Campaigns

Successful Kickstarter Campaigns

Starting your own business can be a rewarding experience, which is not limited to the economic benefits. Unfortunately, many would-be-entrepreneurs fail to implement great business ideas because they fear that they won't get the start-up capital that is necessary to get an idea off the ground. This is where Kickstarter comes in. Kickstarter is a revolutionary website where consumers fund independent projects. Who better to finance a company than the people who will use its products and/or services? If you have an innovative idea and want to fund a project based on that idea, you can post it on Kickstarter with a desired monetary goal and a deadline by which your donations should be made. Your project is funded only if your monetary goal is met by the deadline, and the people who fund your project usually get a reward in exchange. As is expected, some ideas don't get the funds that are necessary, but there are just as many successes. In some cases, ideas that have great appeal receive substantially more than requested. The following are some of the most successful Kickstarter projects.
