Since Kickstarter launched in Mexico in November 2016, we have been blown away by the creativity displayed by Mexican creators. And our backers agree. We’re happy to announce that backers from all over the world have now pledged 100 million Mexican pesos (over US$5 million) to projects from Mexico.

Here is a snapshot of what that looks like:

4,040 projects from creators in Mexico have launched, and 110,653 backers have supported these projects. Our top three categories are: 

  • 870 film & video projects launched
  • 444 music projects launched
  • 414 technology projects launched

At Kickstarter, we are proud to be contributing to the creative ecosystem of Mexico, which is often defined by projects that strive for social good and that inspire us to be more daring and more creative.

This year, we brought Mexico Creates—our creative prompt to share Mexican design with the world—back for a second time. Mexico Creates is live through the end of the year. Be sure to check out some of the projects and support these talented creators!

In addition to the incredible work we’ve seen through Mexico Creates, below are some of our Mexico team’s favorite projects of the past three years.

From Célia Vermicelli, Outreach Lead Mexico: 

68 Voces-68 Corazones (2019)

I love this project because it aims to defend and protect the 68 native indigenous languages that exist in Mexico by telling the stories of these cultures in an animated series. It’s also beautifully illustrated by Mexican artists.

285 backers helped bring this project to life.

Cabina en Malos Pasos (2018)

I find Cabina en Malos Pasos super valuable. It’s a journalism project creating a phone booth for victims of violence, or their loved ones, to share their experiences with violence in Latin America with random strangers on the other end of the phone line. The goal is to enable a dialogue that promotes empathy and awareness.

98 backers helped bring this project to life.

From Georgina Rovirosa, Manager Mexico:

Punto Gozadera (2017)

We need more places like this in Mexico! A vegetarian restaurant and community space run by queer folks and women, Punto Gozadera ran a project to fund and expand their cultural programming back in 2017. Since then, their community has grown tremendously and the space is a pioneer in promoting diversity in food, arts and culture, and in championing feminist and queer causes.

160 backers helped bring this project to life.

 OndaMx (2018)

OndaMx is the project any art lover in Mexico City was waiting for. It’s an app that maps out what’s going on in the arts scene in this city. Connecting arts enthusiasts with venues and galleries, OndaMx seeks to celebrate the diversity of local artists.

182 backers helped bring this project to life.

100 milliones de pesos contribuidos a proyectos de México

Desde que Kickstarter abrió sus puertas a proyectos en México en noviembre de 2016, la creatividad de los creadores mexicanos nos ha impresionado. Y nuestros patrocinadores están de acuerdo. Nos da mucha emoción anunciar que patrocinadores de todo el mundo han contribuido 100 millones de pesos a proyectos de México (esto es más de 5 millones de dólares).

Aquí un vistazo de lo que esto significa: 4,040 proyectos han sido publicados por creadores de México, y 110,653 patrocinadores se han sumado a dichos proyectos. Las tres categorías con más proyectos publicados son: 

  • Cine y video con 870 proyectos 
  • Música con 445 proyectos 
  • Tecnología con 414 proyectos

En Kickstarter, estamos orgullosos de ser parte del ecosistema creativo en México; a menudo definido por proyectos que buscan el bien social, y que nos inspiran a ser más audaces y más creativos.

Este año, traemos a Mexico Creates de regreso, nuestra iniciativa para compartir el diseño mexicano con el mundo. Puedes publicar un proyecto en Mexico Creates hasta fin de año. Y sobre todo, no dejes de echarle un vistazo y apoya a estos talentosos creadores.

Además del increíble trabajo que hemos visto en Mexico Creates, les presentamos algunos de los proyectos favoritos para el equipo de Kickstarter México de los últimos tres años.


De Célia Vermicelli, Outreach Lead Mexico:

 68 Voces-68 Corazones (2019)

Me encanta este proyecto porque busca defender y proteger las 68 lenguas originarias de México contando historias de dichas culturas en una serie animada. Además, está hermosamente ilustrado por artistas mexicanos.

285 patrocinadores ayudaron a hacer este proyecto realidad.

 Cabina en Malos Pasos (2018)

Creo que Cabina en Malos Pasos tiene un valor enorme. Este proyecto de periodismo crea una cabina de teléfono en la que víctimas de la violencia, o sus seres queridos, comparten sus experiencias con la violencia en América Latina con extraños al otro lado del teléfono. El objetivo es establecer un diálogo que promueva la empatía y la consciencia.

98 patrocinadores ayudaron a hacer este proyecto realidad.

De Georgina Rovirosa, Manager Mexico: 

 Punto Gozadera (2017)

¡Necesitamos más proyectos así en México! Punto Gozadera es un restaurante vegetariano y un espacio comunitario operado por queers y mujeres. En el 2017, publicaron un proyecto para financiar y expandir su programación cultural. Y desde entonces, su comunidad ha crecido muchísimo. Además, Punto Gozadera se ha convertido en un pionero en cuanto a espacios que promueven la diversidad en la comida, el arte y la cultura, y en impulsar causas feministas y de la comunidad LGBTQ+.

160 patrocinadores ayudaron a hacer este proyecto realidad.

 OndaMx (2018)

OndaMx es el proyecto que cualquier amante del arte en CDMX estaba esperando. Es una aplicación que mapea lo que está sucediendo en la escena artística en la ciudad en cualquier momento dado. Conectando a amantes del arte con galerías y espacios, OndaMx busca celebrar a artistas locales y darles visibilidad.

182 patrocinadores ayudaron a hacer este proyecto realidad.
