Statista dossier on Kickstarter

This dossier presents a range of statistics and facts about crowdfunding website Kickstarter. Kickstarter is a global crowdfunding platform which helps creative projects to raise funding from backers. Project creators choose a deadline and a minimum funding goal. Projects must reach their funding goal, otherwise no money will be collected. People who back Kickstarter projects are offered tangible rewards such as custom editions and early releases of the projects as well as special experiences in exchange for their pledges. The platform is currently only open for project creators from a small selection of countries but project backing is available internationally.
