Livefunding is set to change all of that. Here’s five reasons why.
You get to touch and feel the product in real life
Instead of viewing a Kickstarter project through a monitor, live-funding lets you to touch and experience a real, working prototype straight from its creator. Fiddle and fondle it to your heart’s content – just so you’re totally sure you’re into it.
Back the project on the spot
After getting to know the product – and we mean really getting to know it – if you’re really digging it, you can fund the project right there on the spot, and maybe score some freebies while you’re at it.
Suss out how legit the project really is
You’ve definitely seen a really cool Kickstarter project being shared online before – but maybe you weren’t sure how legit it was (a quick search of failed Kickstarter projects brings up several cases of disappearing creators and disgruntled customers). At a livefunding event, you can evaluate how authentic the project is for yourself.
Meet the creators themselves
Most creators are regular people just like you and I – so it’ll be cool to chat them up and share your thoughts about their projects with them. Who knows? The feedback you give them could end up making it into the final product.
Check out cool new projects you’ve never seen before
Livefunding events bring together the most promising Kickstarter projects that are coming up – chances are, you’re sure to find something that you like at a live-funding event. With so many new inventions popping up on Kickstarter, there’s a product or invention for everyone from your caffeine-obsessed co-worker to your tech-challenged mom.
