10 figures you need to know before a Kickstarter

What if there was a secret sauce to reach $1M+ on Kickstarter ?

As foolish as it may sound, we decided to seriously look at successful Kickstarter campaigns to see if we could find that magical element.

So we checked all the $500k Kickstarter campaigns and tried to gather as much data as possible : daily amount raised, length of video, day of launch, duration of campaign, etc…

The result? Certainly not a magical recipe giving a single explanation to every success.

But success is the sum of details and there are small details that are widely shared among Kickstarter supernovas. These details have led us to release a presentation about “10 figures you need to know before launching a Kickstarter”.
