Kickstarter is a website that allows people to back projects like video games, music, movies, and more.
More than $2.3 billion has been pledged to various projects since the site's release in 2009. Funding on the site is an all-or nothing proposition - you either get enough donations to reach your project's goal, or all donations get refunded to their backers. About 36% of projects get funded, which means that proposals on Kickstarter need to have polished, clear goals that inspire confidence in potential backers.
