Amazing Kickstarter Statistics - 2012

Postby Charles » Mon Dec 17, 2012 9:58 am

I posted these entries in another topic on the Forums. I think this is something that should be a dedicated subject so I'll re-post here for the community's reference.

The past few months I've been talking quite a bit about what I'm seeing on Kickstarter. A lot of activity and successfully funded projects.

Take a look at what I compiled in three of their categories.

The first one is Most Funded in Comics...

..............

There are 11 projects funded at over $100,000 with the top project at over $1 million.

Of the top 11 projects all but 1 of them were funded this year in 2012. The other at #10 was funded last year in 2011.

There are 35 projects funded at $50,000 and above with all but one of them funded this year.

There are 71 projects funded at $25,000 and above with many more successfully funded at lower amounts.

Of these 71 projects, 60 of them were funded this year in 2012. There were 10 funded in 2011 and 1 funded in 2010.
