Kickstarter: A King Among Crowdfunding Paupers [Infographic]
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.
