Indiegogo Shares Maker Challenge Winners

Indiegogo Maker Challenge Winners

In celebration of the White House Maker Faire, after a trip to DC, Indiegogo  fired up their very own Maker Challenge sponsored by Amazon and Autodesk.  The crowdfunding project commenced on June 18th and it finished on July 16th.  The winners were announced this past Friday.

The innovation of crowdfunding has been a huge boon for creative maker types.  Product concepts can quickly prove relevance and market demand by doing a crowdfunding campaign.  We have seen more than a few blowout successes as consumers rush to back and potentially receive a product that is more often than not just a prototype. A growing number of VC’s are asking Makers to go the crowdfunding path as well to show there is demand for their next big thing.  Hopefully once Title III of the JOBSAct kicks in – allowing retail crowdfunding or alternatively Title IV rules are released that actually allow regular people invest in startups – we will all see a renaissance of creativity in the United States.  Not that there aren’t a ton of really cool creative devices being offered up already – just more.

So below are the selected campaigns that will receive entrepreneurial mentorship plus a 3-month professional account subscription to Selling on Amazon, and a $200 credit toward Fulfillment by Amazon:
