Simple Success Solutions - Part 5: Be Creative - Kickstarter

Simple Success Solutions - Part 5: Be Creative - Kickstarter

What does it take to be successful? Gulf Coast Business Credit (GCBC)’s "Simple Success Solutions" is a series which examines entrepreneurial and startup success stories. This week’s tip is to be as creative as Kickstarter was.

While Kickstarter is currently the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects, they were once a startup trying to figure out how to become successful.  Kickstarter decided to take creativity to a whole new level by supplying a web-based platform that crowdsourced funding in order to bring creative projects to life.

Since launching in 2009, Kickstarter has successfully funded over 73,000 projects totaling almost $1.4 billion dollars pledged. The creator of each individual project launched on Kickstarter keeps 100% ownership and will only receive the money pledged to their project if they are successful in meeting their funding goals. Currently, 44% of the projects launched on Kickstarter have successfully met their funding goals.

We highlighted a few projects that were successfully launched because of Kickstarter:

The Veronica Mars Movie Project

A photo exhibit opened on the Berlin Wall

Several independent movie theaters were saved

A satellite was launched in space

So, try to think outside the box when starting a business. With a dash of creativity, who knows how far you will go!

Gulf Coast Business Credit has helped a variety of startup businesses by supplying accounts receivable financing to increase their cash flow.  With an increased cash flow, your business can focus on growing rather than being held captive by slow-paying customers.
