This is Jay and Zofia. Jay is from California, and Zofia is from Vietnam. We are a combination of Geek, Creators, and People who want to help others. We often participate in community events in the hacker space and maker communities.
A short while ago, we had the idea that we wanted to see if we could find indicators of what helps make Crowdfunding campaigns successful. So as geeks are known to do, we ran a series of analysis on 14,000 campaigns both successful and unsuccessful and looked for ‘predictors of success.’ What we really wanted to find were best practices.
The analysis did shed some light on the subject, which we will be publishing shortly. But…
What we realized is that there is much more to crowdfunding than numbers. That we really needed to speak to crowdfunders to learn what inspired them, and also to gather best practices first hand by interviewing them and sharing those interviews and the tips we learned on our podcast.
Our hope is that we can grow a community of people who help each other, and we think it’s working!
It’s also a lot of fun for us. We hope you enjoy our show and eventually become part of our community.
