Kickstarter



I first heard of Kickstarter when I saw an ad for Pioneer One on The Pirate Bay.

I was intrigued and amazed by the idea. The Kickstarter model works much like traditional investing, except the risk is monumentally less. Each project on Kickstarter has a listed goal and a deadline. Backers pledge their funding in exchange for guaranteed rewards, which the backers will receive if the project reaches its funding goal by its funding deadline. If not, the backers do not pay their pledges and no one is obligated to anyone else.

At the moment, The Adventures of Hero has a Kickstarter drive running to publish the third volume of the trade paperback. Check it out, check out Kickstarter, and help some cool projects get off the ground!
