Kickstarter Rolls Out Curated Pages

kickstarter curated Kickstarter Rolls Out Curated PagesCrowd funding platform Kickstarter has been on fire recently, and today the site launched curated pages, allowing for another level of community involvement and social interaction. 

Curated pages allow organizations and individuals to highlight the projects they are supporting. It kicked off with pages from big name organizations like Pitchfork, Rhode Island School of Design and Creative Commons

A big part of Kickstarter’s success has been the quality control they maintain. Only a small number of the projects submitted are chosen and an even smaller number are featured. 

In order to grow at scale Kickstarter is going to have to start to open up that process. These curated pages will surface a far greater number of ongoing projects while maintaining the curatorial aesthetic that has helped Kickstarter succeed.

2. The general election. In November, whichever two candidates make it out of the gubernatorial primary will face off to become the next New Jersey governor. While Phil Murphy (pictured) is the presumed favorite in the race due to current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s dismal approval ratings tanking Republican credibility for many NJ voters, the results are still up in the air. Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
