The Top Entrepreneurs on Kickstarter
Founded in April of 2009 Kickstarter has created a new path for entrepreneurs to fund their ideas. Every week, tens of thousands of people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, games, fashion, food, publishing, and other creative fields. More than five million people have pledged more than $1 Billion to projects by creators who always maintain full ownership and complete creative control of their work.
Kickstarter aims to let creative people of all kinds — journalists, artists, musicians, game developers, entrepreneurs, bloggers — raise money for their projects by connecting directly with fans, who receive exclusive access and rewards in exchange for their patronage.
Entrepreneurs of all types have created amazing products on Kickstarter. Here are the top 10.
