There is no hard rule on what the project can be. Read the project guidelines for some directions and contact us if you want to discuss the project before launch.

5. What infomation should I share on my project page?
After visiting your project page backers should have a clear sense of:
— What it is you are trying to do and why that is feasible
— How the funds will be needed to execute the project
— Your qualifications to complete this project and why that project is important
The more information you share, the more you will earn your backers’ trust.

6. Do I need a video on my project?
Videos are not required to launch, but projects with a video succeed at a much higher rate (50% vs. 30%), and they also raise more money. So we highly recommend that you include one! If you need help with your video, please contact us.

You decide what will make people support your project. You need to be creative.

Yes. If a project reaches its funding goal before time expires, projects continue to accept pledges until the funding deadline. There is no option to end a project early.

At StartCrunch, we believe in open innovation. Any idea you are worried that can be stolen should not be posted. We collaborate, share and learn.
