As the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects, Kickstarter has helped thousands of creators realize their dreams. To date, over 10,000 artistic projects have raised more than $70 million on Kickstarter across the art, dance, photography and theater categories. Kickstarter is filled with innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others. Since its launch in 2009, 7.5 million people have pledged $1.5 billion, funding more than 75,000 creative projects.
A University of Pennsylvania study, which evaluated Kickstarter’s impact on the creative economy notes that its projects have generated more than $5.3 billion in direct economic impact for its creators and their communities. Creators reported that Kickstarter afforded them creative independence that they would not otherwise have been able to achieve through other funding avenues and enabled them to take risks without compromising their vision.
