Kickstarter has reached their 10,000th funded project! In addition, TechCrunch reports that Kickstarter has funded as many projects in the last month as in the company’s entire first year, and there are more than 300 projects submitted each day. For a little over two years as a company, Kickstarter is performing beautifully. Their celebratory blog post announces a 44% success rate for Kickstarter projects, most of which are music or film & video.
The majority of Kickstarter’s successful projects raise between $1,000 and $5,000. Kickstarter’s total of pledges is, at their last count, more than $75 million. The staff of the site has backed more than 2,000 projects, proof that the company is something its own employees believe in.
