This past summer Feminist Wednesday embarked on the terrifying journey of creating a Kickstarter Campaign to fund our film “Dream, Girl.” This film is a documentary redefining what it means to be a boss by interviewing female entrepreneurs.
In the process we worked like a dog (or maybe in our case a beaver), made a TV appearance, did a monstrous amount of press (Upworthy, ELLE, Washington Post), got a celebrity endorsement, and ended up almost doubling our original goal, raising over $100,000.
I will tell you right now there is no black and white formula for beating the beast that is Kickstarter, however there are some helpful tips and tricks you should be aware of along the way. Please enjoy this list of hints to help you with your Kickstarter! Also, feel free to ask additional questions or share your thoughts in the comments below!
