Kickstarter for New Inventors
Kickstarter is the world’s largest crowdfunding platform for creative projects! It offers a great way to gain exposure and, of course, get funded at any stage of the invention and product development process.
A lot of the projects that we help develop here at Spark Innovations end up on Kickstarter or other similar crowdfunding platforms. Experienced inventors know that it takes not only a huge amount of time and effort to complete a project from the initial stages of the idea until they are ready to take it to market, but an enormous amount of money—at least more than they probably expect.
Kickstarter: Idea Opportunities
Kickstarter provides a great opportunity to help inventors reach their financial goals. If you have launched your project on Kickstarter and don’t reach your goal, don’t worry: you can use it as a marketing tool for exposure and a learning experience. Not all projects are successful on Kickstarter but it doesn’t mean they won’t be successful on the market.
Do your research! Find similar projects to yours and consider how they achieved their success. Check out other crowdfunding sites and review similar ideas. Kickstarter may seem like a great place to help you with your project funding, but not all ideas are cut out for crowdfunding. Kickstarter markets itself as a home for all kinds of projects—film, music, art, theatre, games, comics, design, photography, and more—but the company butters its bread with the money from games, big-budget films, design, and technology.
If you have an innovative idea and you want to get started, talk to us. Spark Innovations can help you bring your project or idea to life. We can help you every step of the way, from the initial stages of the concept phase, through the entire processes of product development, patent and prototypes, even with marketing strategies! If you find yourself in need of money to fund the final stage of your idea and bring it to the market, Kickstarter might be the right place for you.
