Kickstarter: A King Among Crowdfunding Paupers [Infographic]

Since its launch in 2009, Kickstarter has grown into the leading crowdfunding website.

Named one of Time magazine’s 50 Best Websites of 2011, crowdfunding website Kickstarter has helped turn dreamers into doers by raising more than $311 million for more than 30,000 successfully backed projects.

Best-Resume-Examples.com has published an infographic showing how much Kickstarter has grown since launching just two and a half years ago.

Notable Kickstarter successes include OUYA, a portable game console that took less than a day to cross the threshold of $1 million in pledges. The intended goal for the project was $950,000, but it received more than $8 million. How’s that for a kick start?

While Kickstarter has launched numerous successful projects, 12 percent of projects on the site finish without having received even a single pledge.
