beatseqr Kickstarter 2011 preplanning

steve | December 8, 2010 in announcements | Comments (0)

Hey so I’ve been working with Kickstarter.com to figure out a project I can do to help fund building more beatseqrs, and I thought since the holidays are mid-way through, I should just wait until after the new year to put it up and get it going. But, I’ve also been thinking that I could put my plan up here ahead of making it go live to gauge interest and make adjustments as necessary.

The short description of kickstarter.com is that someone makes a proposal to do some kind of creative project, and then offers different rewards for different levels of support from the community. The project has a target amount that it needs to raise in pledges from people in the community by a set time frame, or else nobody has to actually give the money they pledged, and everyone walks away. So, it’s an All-Or-Nothing kind of deal. If the project gets enough support to meet the target funding goal, then everyone who participated gets the reward for the level they pledged to. Pretty cool.

If you choose to participate, you’re helping to fund a project that is awesome. As an early adopter, you will get some cool extras to help you feel engaged in the project. I’m looking to raise a minimum of $1500, which would end up being only 5 assembled units. And, if we get over the target amount, I just keep building and building and building until everyone who participated gets what they pledged for.

So, here’s what the plan currently is for my beatseqr-on-kickstarter in descending order of pledge amount and rewards:
