Everette Taylor's Head Shot

Kickstarter is is a global crowdfunding platform focused on creativity. Our mission is to help bring creative projects to life. Since 2009, people around the world have pledged over 7.5 billion dollars to help creative projects of all kinds come to life, from some of the biggest games in the world to Grammy-winning music albums and Oscar-winning films – to new products and technologies that have become household names.

We believe that art and creative expression are essential to a healthy and vibrant society, and the space to create requires protection. We don’t want art world elites and entertainment executives to define our culture; we want creative people—even those who’ve never made anything before—to take the wheel. We help creators connect directly with their communities, putting power where it belongs.
