Best of Crowdfunding for October 2021
I come across hundreds of great campaigns on Kickstarter and Indiegogo every week. Sometimes I get to speak with the creators, and sometimes I get to learn about their product through their campaign page. However, the ones that stick with me the most each month are the ones that are unique and marketed well. After all, it’s not easy to leave a lasting impression out of thousands of other projects.
