Yup! Pebble Time just became the most funded project on KickStarter after raising over $15 million dollars from 61k backers; that’s more than 3000% of their goal of $500k. Like I said last week, when you build a good product, the money rolls in.
With 23 more days to go for this funding round, I wonder how much they will raise in total and thereby set a new high for the most funded KickStarter project of all time. The previously most funded project was the Coolest Cooler at $13+ million dollars. And next to that was Pebble‘s first KickStarter project for the first version of their smartwatch which successfully raised $10 million.
This is probably the first time ONE company makes it to the top of most funded projects on KickStarter. I think Pebble has probably earned THREE records here… 1 for the most funded KickStarter project; 2 for being the only company with multiple projects at the top 5 most funded KickStarter projects; 3 for being the first company to have multiple projects at the top 5 most funded projects.
What do you think about this, and how much do you think they would raise at the end of this funding period?
