According to Digital Spy, since Kickstarter’s inception in 2009 more than 5.7 million backers have used the crowd funding service to invest over a billion dollars in various independent projects throughout 224 countries. 2013 was a particularly active year for Kickstarter, with over half of the company’s total pledges coming in during that year alone.
