Less than four months after launching in Mexico, crowdfunding platform Kickstarter took a look back at the country’s campaign successes so far.
Kickstarter reported that during the first 100 days, more than 500 independent artists, photographers, filmmakers, designers, developers, musicians, etc. have launched projects and have already raised 16 million pesos from backers around the world.
“Together, they’re bringing some incredibly creative ideas to life — from a new electronic–Afro-Latino fusion album to a collection of leather goods that promotes positive social change to a fantastically weird series of short animated films. And we’re particularly excited to report that 25 percent of backers are from the United States. At this moment, we see a clear desire in our community to reach beyond borders and build bridges across cultures.”
Kickstarter also revealed it pledged to donate its 5% fee from every successful project launched in Mexico within the first 100 days to a Mexico-based charitable organization fighting for a more creative and equitable world:
“Our donation will go to Crea, an organization working to empower women entrepreneurs from economically marginalized communities in Mexico. We hope you’ll take a minute to learn more about the important work they’re doing.”
The platform then added:
“We’re inspired and energized by the wide range of creative ideas brought to life by Mexico-based creators in their first 100 days on Kickstarter — and we can’t wait for what’s to come.”
