Not content to be simply a passive platform for people trying to fund their projects, Kickstarter reached out to the community and asked for specific projects yesterday, issuing a post on what they’re looking for.
“Inspired in part by Y Combinator’s requests for startups, we’re going public with a list of the things we’d love to see more of on Kickstarter,” Kickstarter design and technology lead Julio Terra writes. “We hope this inspires creators who are working in these areas to get in touch. If your project fits the bill, we can help make it shine and spotlight it for our community of 13 million backers.”
The Greenpoint-based company is one of the largest in Brooklyn, and has helped to launch some great local projects.
