10 Ridiculous Crowdfunding Campaigns That Actually Worked

Today, we have prepared for you a very interesting list of 10 Ridiculous Crowdfunding Campaigns That Actually Worked!

We are sure you have acquainted yourself with the term crowdfunding. If not, crowdfunding is the newest and hottest trend for entrepreneurs to achieve their goals and dreams. The core of crowdfunding is getting the necessary funds for your project or idea from people around the world, mainly over the internet, who liked it and are willing to support you. Although some were skeptical about the idea in the beginning, it proved very successful as you can see on our The 11 Most Successful Kickstarter Projects list.

Over the years there have been some awesome projects, there were a lot of those who were not so awesome, but some worked in spite of that, as you will see in our 10 Ridiculous Crowdfunding Campaigns That Actually Worked list. It is always hard to determine what moves people and what makes them say WOW. Mainly, the ideas that lean on something popular in that dedicated moment, will usually work. It doesn’t matter if they are smart, well thought through, or just appeared in someone’s head on a crazy Saturday night.

The trend wasn’t followed by common people only, some major players, like Spike Lee, joined in asking for funds.
But here are we blabbering about the crowdfunding, while you are all waiting to see our 10 Ridiculous Crowdfunding Campaigns That Actually Worked . Power to the people, here you go.
