What is Kickstarter?
Finding financial backers for your pet project used to be a chore. But thanks to Kickstarter, a crowdfunding platform, you can now raise funds from millions of people in exchange for various perks, such as a free copy of the album or game you want to produce.
The amounts donated by individuals range from a few dollars to tens of thousands. Earlier this month the crowdfunding website passed $1bn (£599 million) in pledges - demonstrating just how far it has come since its launch in 2009, almost five years shy. To date over 5.7 million people have made successful pledges to fund 57,000 projects, 60 projects have even managed to smash the $1 million barrier.
