Kickstarter’s 2013: $480 million to nearly 20,000 projects

It’s a little late to the party, but Kickstarter has finally released its 2013 year in review. According to the company’s own internal numbers, roughly $480 million went to 19,911 projects last year. That’s a big increase over 2012, which saw $319,786,629 and 18,109 projects. Unfortunately, that’s the most information Kickstarter is willing to give. Despite turning over a wealth of information about how individual categories performed in the past years, 2013’s report is relatively light on numbers in favor of spotlights on popular Kickstarter products. It’s no doubt a successful year for the platform, but the lack of details doesn’t make the review a very interesting read.
