Choose the crowdfunding partner that’s with you at every step
Evaluating Indiegogo vs. Kickstarter? As you might have guessed, it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison, so we’ve assembled a few of the key differences here. Let’s dive in!
If you’re on this page, we know you’re probably at the beginning of something great. An art project. A cool new product or piece of technology. A social or environmental cause. Regardless of the details of your own project, congratulations on taking the first step!
One of the first questions for anyone considering crowdfunding is surely, “Which platform should I use?” It’s an important question—your crowdfunding partner will be a big part of your life for weeks or months (or even years!) and can have a direct impact on your success.
As you weigh your options and check your boxes, consider this: Fundraising is only one step in your journey, and there’s simply no place like Indiegogo for supporting you from the earliest “aha!” moments to the nitty-gritty details of sharing your project with the world.
