Incase you haven't heard, Etsy has developed a new crowdfunding platform to help Etsy sellers jump start their creative business. The crowdfunding platform is currently a pilot run until Sunday, but if things goes well the program be here to stay. While the platform itself is very similar to the well known Kickstarter and Indiegogo, the Etsy's platform has the advantage of allowing sellers to integrate the crowdfunding directly to their existing Etsy shop.
A few of my favorite ideas currently looking for funding are these adorable children's superhero sets, this lovely fig citron soy candle, and a handmade pottery company. I convinced that every kids birthday gift I buy for the next year will probably include this flying super hero set. Cute, right? Head over and check it out! There is certainly a little something for everybody, and if nothing else you'll get exposed to a bunch of great makers with some serious hustle.
