… but I don’t have the money.
Imagine – you have a burning idea for a new app, but you don’t have the cash. You’d love for someone to come in as a joint venture partner, but you don’t have anything to show them, to get them excited. So you ask your IT mates, put advertisements in Gumtree, looking for someone to share your dream – but even your IT mates don’t seem keen to help you.
What do you do?
You launch a project on Kickstarter of course.
Reach out to the world, create your kickstarter project, and find other people who share your dream, who are willing to put a bit of their own cash towards making it happen.
Consider the Kickstarter World of Magic project.
Master of Magic was a mid 90s DOS game, a mixture of strategy and action, which even after 18 years, still has a substantial fan base. The graphics were poor, the game unstable, the gameplay often slow, and it crashed way too frequently. But for diehard fans, there has never been any game since which fired our imaginations in quite the same way.
To date the Kickstarter Worlds of Magic project has raised £45,000 (approx. $60,000) towards realising their dream.
My only regret – I wish I had thought of it first.
