Kickstarter has become a predominant way for entrepreneurs with great ideas to get the funding they need without losing precious equity. The draw for backers could be the feeling of helping someone realize their dream from the ground up. Or maybe it’s just that certain reward tier that entices a backer (Guilty!).
Since this infographic was created, the new Pebble Time project raised more than the Coolest cooler. As of this writing, they have raised a little over 17 million dollars with 18 days still to go!
If you have a killer idea and don’t know where to get the cash you need, Kickstarter is definitely worth a shot.
