Isn’t summer supposed to slow things down? We kept plenty busy here at Kickstarter. In the last quarter we announced that we’re opening up to creators in Scandinavia and Ireland, encouraged our community to speak out about net neutrality, celebrated our first year in Canada, revamped our discovery tools, and blitzed the World Maker Faire with our first-ever Kickstarter creator zone. There were film fests, big projects, unexplainably viral projects, the works.
Here’s a quick rundown of stats for the third quarter (July 1 - Sept. 30):
Dollars pledged to projects: $138,917,566
Average pledged per day: $1,509,974
Successfully funded projects: 6,124
Total backers: 1,079,201
New backers: 612,596
And even more numbers:
10,141 people backed 10 or more projects in the quarter.
3,000 people (more or less) came out to our first-ever Los Angeles Film Fest. It was a beautiful night!
