Emerging entrepreneurs move fast and rely on outside financial support and mentorship due to the accelerated pace of their work. Crowd-sourcing, coaching, funding, and networking allows entrepreneurs to remain creative and focused on their ideas while leveraging the resources and power of the communities in which they are situated. How might we mimic these environments which connect people and enable entrepreneurs to do their best work?

Where Projects Come From

Our mission is to help bring creative projects to life.

Kickstarter is an enormous global community built around creativity and creative projects. Over 10 million people, from every continent on earth, have backed a Kickstarter project. We measure our success as a company by how well we achieve that mission, not by the size of our profits. That’s why, in 2015, we became a Benefit Corporation. Benefit Corporations are for-profit companies that are obligated to consider the impact of their decisions on society, not only shareholders. Radically, positive impact on society becomes part of a Benefit Corporation’s legally defined goals. Every artist, filmmaker, designer, developer, and creator on Kickstarter has complete creative control over their work — and the opportunity to share it with a vibrant community of backers.



Make it Happn

Find the people you've crossed paths with.

"Why should we go on dating websites when we meet so many new people every day, in real life?". Starting with this very simple observation, Fabien Cohen, Didier Rappaport and Antony Cohen decided to create an app that gives an everyday superpower: the power to find a person you've crossed paths with again, and to get in touch with them. This is how Happn was born in January 2014 in Paris, and seduced thousands of users soon after. Discover the people you've crossed paths with, the people you liked, and the people you'd like to find again. 



The Pulse of the Sharing Economy


The Mesh is reshaping how we go to market, who we partner with and how we invite participation and engage new customers.

Traditional businesses follow a simple formula: create a product or service, sell it, collect money. But in the last few years a fundamentally different model has taken root - one in which consumers have more choices, more tools, more information, and more peer-to-peer power. 

Mesh companies create, share and use social media, wireless networks, and data crunched from every available source to provide people with goods and services at the exact moment they need them, without the burden and expense of owning them outright. There is real money to be made and trusted brands and strong communities to be built in helping your customers buy less but use more.
