Choose the crowdfunding partner that’s with you at every step

Evaluating Indiegogo vs. Kickstarter? As you might have guessed, it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison, so we’ve assembled a few of the key differences here. Let’s dive in!

One of the first questions you’ve probably asked yourself during your crowdfunding journey is which crowdfunding platform is right for you. The crowdfunding partner you choose will have a major impact on your product’s success — not to mention be a big part of your life for weeks, months, or even years — so it’s important to evaluate carefully.

As you weigh your options, consider this: Indiegogo is the leading crowdfunding platform for tech products, as well as the only full-lifecycle platform for art projects, social impact campaigns, and environmental innovation projects.

So whether you’re developing a tech product or starting a project for social good, Indiegogo will help you successfully launch your campaign every step of the way.
