I have not posted lately – mostly due to all the cool projects we have going on at iTribe. However, I did want to share some awesome news considering iTribe is beginning to help artists dive into the crowdfunding world: Kickstarter & MoMA have collaborated.
“In honor of NYCxDESIGN – New York City’s official citywide celebration of design – the MoMA Design Store is pleased to present a suite of products brought to life by Kickstarter. By involving the public in the creative process, Kickstarter uses the power of community to help designers take great ideas from concept to reality. MoMA Design Store is proud to honor these individuals and their designs as examples of how everyone is capable of making incredible things.” (MoMA Design Store)
What exactly is crowdfunding? Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet. “Musicians, filmmakers, and artists have successfully raised funds and fostered awareness through crowdfunding.”
