Test the Impossible: Kickstarter
Kickstarter will be in our spotlight for the next Test the Impossible, as we watch and discuss pitches that have sought attention through any crowdfunding platform, including a focus on those in Toronto who are currently looking for backers.
We will take a look at how the concept has evolved and where it might be headed next — and how it has influenced new models of creative entrepreneurship.
While the website recently had is first two million-dollar projects in one day, and expects to bring in $150 million in overall funding this year, some types of Kickstarter projects obviously fare better than others.
Toronto creators who have used Kickstarter (or other similar crowdfunding platforms) — whether or not the projects reached their goal — are encouraged to attend to share their experiences.
Locals who have considered using Kickstarter in the future can get advance insights, too.
Those who would like to present a live version of their pitch — and screen any accompanying images or videos — are invited to let us know in advance at email@example.com
