If like me you enjoy supporting new Kickstarter crowdfunding projects you might be interested in a new storefront that has been launched over on the Amazon website this week which allows you to purchase successful Kickstarter products directly from the Amazon store.
Amazon customers shopping the Kickstarter Collection can choose from a variety of categories, including Electronics, Home & Kitchen, and Toys & Games, as well as themes such as STEM Products, Exquisite Objects, Inventing The Future, and Stay Connected, says Amazon.
Francois Saugier, Head of EU Seller Services, Amazon explains :
Startups from across Europe are always looking for new ways to bring their inventions to market, whilst our customers want to discover new, cutting-edge products for Christmas and beyond. That is why we launched Amazon Launchpad to provide startups with the support they need to help bring their ideas to life, and by working with Kickstarter we will be increasing our selection for customers across Europe.
Yancey Strickler, CEO and Co-Founder of Kickstarter adds :
Kickstarter helps independent creators find the resources, courage, and community they need to bring their creative projects to life. We’re thrilled to collaborate with Amazon Launchpad on creating a new path for startups to launch their products and potentially be discovered by millions of new customers.
