Hallo Deutschland!

(Scroll down for the English version, please!)

Gute Nachrichten! Wir freuen uns Künstler, Musiker, Designer und Projektgründer in der Kickstarter-Community Deutschland willkommen zu heißen. Ab heute können Projektgründer in Deutschland den Aufbau ihres Projekts beginnen — und schon ab dem 12. Mai live gehen!

Für die nächsten Wochen haben wir einige Veranstaltungen in verschiedenen Städten in ganz Deutschland geplant.

Wir hoffen, dass du bei einer dieser Veranstaltungen dabei sein kannst. Falls nicht, würde ich dir gerne hier Kickstarter vorstellen:

Hallo Deutschland!

ich bin Yancey, CEO bei Kickstarter und ich freue mich, euch alle in der Kickstarter Community begrüßen zu dürfen.

Kickstarter ist die weltweit größte Crowdfunding-Community für kreative Projekte – ganz egal ob es sich dabei um Filme, Spiele, Restaurants, Musik, Design oder Technologie handelt. Dank vieler fantasievoller Ideen und dem Enthusiasmus von Millionen Menschen weltweit wurden seit der Gründung von Kickstarter im Jahr 2009 über 80.000 kreative Projekte erfolgreich finanziert.

Ein paar dieser Projekte wurden von Deutschen initiiert, die gemeinsam mit Partnern auf der ganzen Welt zusammengearbeitet haben, um unsere Plattform bereits vor dem offiziellen Start in Deutschland nutzen zu können. So wurden eine Fotoausstellung an der Berliner Mauer eröffnet, Kochbücher geschrieben, Kunst, Filme und neue Schriftarten entworfen und sogar die weltweit längste Murmelbahn verwirklicht! Heute sind wir endlich in Deutschland angekommen, um euch ohne Einschränkungen bei der Verwirklichung und Finanzierung eurer Ideen zu unterstützen: Kickstarter ist ab sofort in deutscher Sprache verfügbar und Projekte können in Euro gestartet werden. Zudem haben wir eine Reihe großartiger Events für deutsche Projektgründer geplant.

Wir glauben, dass wir alle in einem neuen, kreativen Zeitalter leben, in dem jeder mit Zugang zum Internet seine Ideen zum Leben erwecken kann. Kickstarter hat in dieser Entwicklung eine bedeutende Rolle eingenommen: Mehr als 1 Milliarde US-Dollar wurden bereits an Projektgründer verteilt und wir haben den Unterstützungsprozess modern, einheitlich und für alle zugänglich gemacht.

An alle Künstler, Projektgründer und zukünftige Projektgründer in Deutschland: Kickstarter wurde für euch gemacht. Um Menschen und eure kreativen Projekte zusammen zu bringen. Es wird von einem Team unterstützt, das ebenso wie ihr aus engagierten Künstlern und Gründern besteht und euch bestmöglich bei der Umsetzung eurer Ideen unterstützen wird.

An alle Interessierten, Fans und Förderer in Deutschland: Kickstarter lebt durch euch. Es wurde geschaffen, um euch mit faszinierenden Künstlern und großartigen Ideen zusammen zu bringen. Es wird hier in Brooklyn von einem Team unterstützt, das ebenso wie ihr aus begeisterten Fans besteht.

Wir sind alle mehr als optimistisch, was die Zukunft kreativen Schaffens angeht. Wir sehen mehr Möglichkeiten und Chancen für Künstler und Projektgründer als jemals zuvor. Wir wollen mehr Menschen dabei unterstützen, ihre kreativen Ideen zum Leben zu erwecken. Das war es, was uns in der Vergangenheit ausgemacht hat und für was wir auch in Zukunft stehen werden.

Wir können es kaum erwarten, dass ihr Teil davon werdet.

<3 Yancey

Big news today! We’re excited to welcome artists, musicians, designers, and creators of all types based in Germany to the Kickstarter community. Creators in Germany can start building their projects today and launch them to the world on May 12.

To celebrate this big launch, we’ll be having lots of events in cities across Germany over the next few weeks. We hope you’ll come and say hi, but in case not everyone can make it, I wrote a letter to introduce you to Kickstarter:

Hallo Deutschland!

My name is Yancey, I’m the CEO of Kickstarter, and it’s my pleasure to welcome all of you to the Kickstarter community.

Kickstarter is the world’s largest funding community for creative projects — everything from films, games, restaurants, and music to art, design, and technology. Thanks to the imagination and enthusiasm of millions of people across the globe, more than 80,000 creative projects have been successfully funded on Kickstarter since we launched in 2009.

Some of those projects were created by enterprising Germans, who worked with people in other countries to use the site before we were even fully open to Germany. They put a photo exhibit on the Berlin Wall and made cookbooks, art, films, new typefaces and even the world’s longest marble shoot! But today, we are finally here to serve the German community in a complete way — our site is in German, you can start a project in euro, and we’re throwing a great series of initial events for German creators.

We believe we are all living in a new creative golden age, where anyone with internet access can bring an idea to life. Kickstarter has played an important role in this creative renaissance: through Kickstarter, people have distributed more than $1 billion to creators, and we’ve remade patronage into an accessible, modern, and mainstream way to create and share.

To the artists, creators, and aspiring creators of Germany: Kickstarter was made for you. It was built to bring people together around your creative projects. It’s supported by a team of enthusiastic fellow artists and creators who are devoted to helping your ideas come to life.

To the fans, super-fans, and patrons of Germany: Kickstarter is powered by you. It was built to bring you together with amazing artists with great ideas. And it’s supported by a team of enthusiastic fellow fans here in Brooklyn.

We are extreme optimists on the future of creativity. We see more access and opportunity for artists and creators than any time in history. We exist to help more people bring their creative projects to life. This is what we’ve always been about and always will be about.

We can’t wait for you to be a part of it.

<3 Yancey 

CEO, Kickstarter

      Hi there, congrats Germany! Any news to open kickstarter for creators in Spain? Is there any roadmap? Kind regards from Spain...

    3. Louis-Philippe Loncke on

      I heard that France was coming, but indeed, we'd love a word from KS about the countries in the pipeline. France, Belgium, Spain, ... We know you can't be sure but just tell if if busy with it and potentially the estimation of when KS will be ready for the other countries. It MAKES a difference as I do know (including myself) people who will launch soon but can't yet. And it would be a shame to launch on IGG (well, they' re good too) and hear 1 week later our country is open. We are ready to delay our campaigns of 1 or 2 weeks or more if we can go on KS.

    4. FU KICKSTARTER, DON'T CARE ABOUT BACKERS on

      It's sad to see that there are so many projects that end in failure and are not being reported or measured. I have been a backer of many projects were they end up being scams like Malvin Joyce and now Corran Paddleboard. Kickstarter's policy is to let the creator and backer work it out after the money has been collected. For Malvin Joyce, they took the money and ran. There was no project and there was no actual product at the end. And Kickstarter would not release any information. As for the Corran Paddleboard, the creator sold the business prior to delivering any product. Both of these failed Kickstarter guidelines but still no help from Kickstarter. So for those countries now able to support campaigns -- BEWARE and Good Luck.
