Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects.
Kickstarter is a home for everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. It’s full of projects, big and small, that are brought to life through the direct support of people like you. Since its launch in 2009, more than 3.9 million people have pledged over $575 million, funding more than 39,000 creative projects. Thousands of creative projects are raising funds on Kickstarter right now.
Each project is independently created.
The filmmakers, musicians, artists, and designers you see on Kickstarter have complete control over and responsibility for their projects. Kickstarter is a platform and a resource, not involved in the development of the projects themselves. Anyone can launch a project on Kickstarter as long as it meets their guidelines.

Kickstarter is awesome, one of my favourite websites.
I agree. Kickstarter is a perfect tool to help get your product the the public. It really steps you through the business side as well, by developing a business strategy and plan. It’s lots of work, but fun too.
