Projects Which Raised the Most on Kickstarter
Kickstarter is an amazing crowdfunding platform that started working back in 2009. It provides endless opportunities to people from all around the world. Crowdfunding has become a powerful tool for people who need money, whether they are individuals or companies. The important thing is to draw attention and make people want to support the event.
Later on, many other crowdfunding websites started. Some of them have certain preconditions, while others don’t. For example, generosity is a part of a great crowdfunding platform, IndieGoGo, and it is for people in need – the poor and the sick who need help from others. Generally, crowdfunding triggers well in every one of us when we help someone living far away from us to reach their goals.
Here are eight most-funded campaigns from Kickstarter by now.
Pebble Time, 2015
Pebble is a smartwatch maker who started a campaign in 2012. Their latest watch is the most funded thing in the platform’s history and the fastest one! It raised $1 million in less than an hour, although their initial goal was to raise a summary of $500,000!
