How to Surpass Your Kickstarter Funding Goals by 600%
Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms are truly viable options now for launching a company.
Just last quarter alone, people used Kickstarter to raise over $144 million for projects that ranged from feature-length films and industrial design products to print magazines and pop-up restaurants.
Over 5,000 projects successfully met their funding goals. In this presentation, we'll cover simple crowdfunding tricks to get your creative endeavor off the ground.
Speaker: David Endler
Previously the CEO and co-founder of Austin-based Jumpshot, a fully automated and fun solution for solving PC frustration.
Jumpshot launched on Kickstarter in 2012 and quickly gained momentum surpassing its original funding goal by 600%.
The early adoption by users and follow-on attention catapulted Jumpshot to
mainstream accolades and led to an acquisition a year later by global
antivirus firm, Avast Software in September 2013.
David currently leads Avast's team in Austin which is expanding and supporting
Jumpshot's technology to Avast's global user base.
