BackerKit has been building pledge management and marketing tools for crowdfunding creators and backers for a decade. Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of witnessing the magic that happens when creators and their fans come together to bring great ideas into the world. But we knew it was time for the industry to move forward.
In June, we announced Crowdfunding by BackerKit — a new crowdfunding platform that we are building alongside a select group of creators. In the past six months, not only have 35 projects funded, but creators like CMYK, Corviforms, and XYZ Game Labs have had their most successful campaigns to date on the platform. We’re listening to creators’ feedback, we’re learning from their wins, and together we’re developing tools and practices that we’re eager to share with the crowdfunding community.
As we look ahead to 2023, we are preparing to welcome many more creators and backers to the Crowdfunding by BackerKit platform. We’re pleased to announce that we are now accepting creator applications to launch campaigns with us next year. While we plan to launch about six new projects every week and increase the variety of projects on Crowdfunding by BackerKit, we remain focused on developing the platform for the future. This means we will continue to focus on a smaller number of select campaigns in the coming months with an eye toward more general availability later in 2023.
