Pitch your Ideas to the World and get Funding with Kickstarter
Kickstarter is almost like Dragon’s Den for us peasants!
It gives you the opportunity to:
- Pitch your ideas to the world and get funding to make it happen
- Discover and provide funding for other people’s great ideas
Each project will have a target amount of money they need, to make the project happen. Depending on how much you pledge, you will receive a gift from the company requesting funds. Sometimes the gift is the product itself, or if it’s a movie that needs funding, you might bag yourself a name in the credits. So if you have a project idea but no money – Kickstarter is a great way to see if the public like your creation.
There is a lot of potential uses for teachers. Just one application is, Enterprise in the classroom. You could pitch your ideas on Kickstarter to get funding for the Community Cafe you are opening, tutor centre you are running, flower exhibition, art gallery, etc. It makes all those ‘if only’s’ finally possible.
