Kickstarter campaigns have grown more popular to raise funding for business ideas that are perhaps somewhat off the beaten path but have a devote folllowing. Similar to raising capital from other sources, a successful campaign has to convince the investor of some key elements of your endeavor:

  • The significance of the project
  • The market
  • Your creative approach to address the opportunity
  • Your ability to execute
  • The return on the investment.

We liked Sam Van Aken's social-environmental campaign to create public orchards with native and heirloom species. Sam convinced over 150 backers and exceeded his campaign goal ahead of time!
