Five Alternatives to Kickstarter. Just in Case.

You know Kickstarter. It’s great. Lot of random amazingness going on over there. But sometimes that’s not good enough. Sometimes you need to add a little spice to your crowdfunding... ness. So here they are: five fledgling alternatives to Kickstarter. First up, crowdsexing. Naturally...

Making Your (Adult) Dreams Come True
FANTASYLAND

Making Your (Adult) Dreams Come True

Yep. Crowdsexing. You know, just your standard platform for dreaming up adult-related projects and sharing them with the world. Anything goes, really. Just post an idea and wait for the donations to come rolling in. Unless your idea pertains to apricot jelly, Ricky Stratton’s mom from Silver Spoons and... never mind.

Funding Your Own Presidential Campaign
THE VOICE

Funding Your Own Presidential Campaign

There’s an election coming up. Maybe you have something to say about that. Maybe even enough to launch a TV or radio campaign. This site will help finance that. Because it’s about damn time your message of hot tub finance reform reached the people.

Starting a Fund-Raiser for... Anything
IMAGINE THAT

Starting a Fund-Raiser for... Anything

Let’s say you’re planning a road trip. Or recording your first album. Or trying to finance your gimlet-dispensing messenger bag concept. First off, put us on the wait list. That sounds amazing. Secondly, you’ll need this site—it lets you launch a fund-raiser for anything imaginable. This could get ugly.

Congrats, You’re a Music Producer Now
MUSICAL SHARES

Congrats, You’re a Music Producer Now

At some point today, you listened to music. But not the kind you’ll find on PledgeMusic. That’s because the artists haven’t made it big yet. Which is because you haven’t donated yet. But when you do, expect anything from one-on-one Skype chats with the bands to release-party invites. And music.

Apps. There’s a Kickstarter for That.
APPER’S DELIGHT

Apps. There’s a Kickstarter for That.

Ah yes, the one about apps. You knew there would be apps. It’s called Appsplit, and it’s all about developing, funding and/or selling them. There are apps about football, apps about the beach, apps about... making apps. Wow. We just overused the hell out of that word.
