170,000 Canadians Pledged Total of $28 Million to Kickstarter Projects Last Year

More than three million pledges totalled $500 million across 22,000 projects on Kickstarter in 2014—more than $1,000 per minute.

In Canada, 170,000 Canadians pledged a total of $28 million last year, according to the crowdfunding platform. It was a small role our nation played in the grand scheme of things, but we expect the participation of Canadians in crowdfunding to grow as more platforms—Kickstarter included—welcome Canadian projects.

Kickstarter says that 773,824 people backed more than one project, 71,478 people backed more than 10 projects, and 1,125 people backed more than 100 projects.
