Kickstarter Passed Half a Billion Dollars in Pledges in 2014
J Thoendell stashed this in Business
More than 3.3 million people pledged $529 million total.
Kickstarter had its biggest year yet in 2014. The crowdfunding website saw more than 3.3 million people pledge $529 million to various projects over the course of the year, up from 3 million people pledging $480 million in 2013.
First of all, wow.
But then, wait a minute.
They only grew from $480 million to $529 million? That's less than 10% growth.
And they only grew from 3 million people to 3.3 million people? That's also 10% growth.
Why such slow growth?
