kickstarter logoKickstarter is a crowdfunding site that provides a platform to raise money for creative projects.

Only projects that meet their goal are funded. If a project you backed doesn’t meet their goal by the deadline, your credit card will not be billed. Rewards are offered for various pledge amounts.

This infographic from ZippyCart and Killer Infographics on the Science of Crowdfunding (click on the link, not the picture) is a great explanation.

I won’t go into details of how to use the site (unless you have specific questions), since the help on the site is fairly extensive, including a FAQ, guidelines, a style guide and kickstarter school.

If you have a kickstart project, tell us about it in the comments and Good Luck!
