Where could I get money? I talked to a bunch of folks and I learned a ton. I planned and planned. In the fall of , I met Yancey Strickler, and we became fast friends.
Yancey soon joined me in brainstorming. We bought a whiteboard. We had big dreams. I convinced some friends to give us a little bit of money.
At some point I made this rough design of the site. Clearly we needed more help. About a year later, I was introduced to Charles Adler, through an old friend.
The day after we were introduced, Charles came over to my apartment and he and I started working together almost every day.
After months and months of collaboration, we ended up with wireframes and specifications for the site. But none of us could code.
We had a few false starts hiring people to build the site. There were months where not much happened. Charles moved to San Francisco and took some part-time freelance work.
Yancey was still at his day job. We had this money from our friends and not much was happening. It was emotionally draining.
In the summer of things finally started to move again. I was introduced to Andy Baio, who, though he was living in Portland, started to help us out.
We were a scattered team that lived through Skype and email Charles had moved again, this time to Chicago , but we were finally building — even as the economy started to collapse.
Finally, on April 28, , we launched Kickstarter to the public. We told as many friends as possible, and Andy announced it on his awesome blog Waxy.
On equity-based platforms, crowdfunding syndicates reduce information asymmetry through dual channels — through portfolio diversification and better due diligence as in the case of offline early-stage investing, but also by allowing lead investors with more information and better networks to lead crowds of backers to make investment decisions.

Expect the first few days after launch to be very busy as you spread the word to your community, answer questions from potential backers, and more.
You may need to spend the last few days rallying your social networks in order to reach your funding goal. Projects sometimes take on a life of their own, and in that case you should expect to spend more time creating and fulfilling rewards.
You can reach out with your questions through this contact form. We also recommend taking a look at our FAQs for more detailed information, along with the creator handbook for guidance on starting and running a project.
We built Kickstarter as a tool for artists, designers, makers, musicians, and creative people everywhere. It also gives backers incentive to pledge more to help you reach your goal.
Millions of backers agree — helping to create something new is exciting. People love peeking behind the creative curtain and directly supporting the creative process.
From backyard performances to large public murals, thousands of arts projects have broken new ground, sparked meaningful dialogue, and given people the opportunity to share their work with the world.
We're here for you! Our Community Managers know all about running projects in each of our categories. Drop us a line about your project idea:
