The secret’s out guys, we’ve got a lot of data here at ThingsWeStart, and a few groups are pulling some very interesting numbers out of it.
Kelly Clay of Forbes wrote about ThingsWeStart and noticed that $274.5 million has been raised on kickstarter for U.S. projects; that’s about 79 percent of the $347 million total raised.
And in a time when the economy is a ticket item for the whole country and when people are looking to make their money work in the most impactful ways possible, we think this statistic is pretty interesting.
The data from Thingswestart found the majority of funds raised from these projects are from projects based in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Different types of projects are more successful in certain cities as well – music projects from Nashville do very well on Kickstarter, whereas design projects from Palo Alto have raised the most money than any other city in the same category.
What trends in data are most surprising or interesting to you?
