When talking about crowdfunding it is impossible to neglect kickstarter. Since their establishment in 2009, kickstarter has supported more than 77,000 projects totaling over 2 billion dollars.

Czech Republic overall winner in 2014
So let’s look at it: we took the total number of campaigns and looked for the number of successfully completed projects.
- By that logic, Czech Republic had the best success rate, followed shortly by Bosnia and Herzegovina and then Slovenia.
- When it comes to the total amount raised in all campaigns, in absolute terms Czech Republic pledged the most money, followed by Slovenia and Austria.
- Czech Republic also makes first place when it comes to the highest funding generated in one CEE project: 1.7 million dollars followed by Austria with 558,863 dollars and Slovenia with 458,071 dollars.
- The highest funding percentage was performed by a Slovenian project with 1832%.
