Kickstarter, a funding platform for creative projects

Kickstarter is an online forum for those interested in sharing their artistic or technological projects. This online platform allows artists and inventors to exhibit their work and gather financial support for their projects through the global network. Through the Kickstarter system, potential funders and supporters of projects have the opportunity to review project plans and completion timelines, which allows people to be virtually involved in project geneses. As Kickstarter Inc explains, "People come to Kickstarter to build community around their projects."
