Thought Leaders are an international group of Kickstarter creators who are celebrated as leaders in their fields.
In 2017, Kickstarter introduced our first Thought Leaders, an international group of Kickstarter creators and advocates selected for their wisdom, experience, and contributions to the creative community.
Since then, Thought Leaders have teamed up with their communities to lead events and launch groundbreaking projects. Here are just a few of the things they accomplished:
- Oscar Lhermitte teamed up with us to launch Quickstarter, an evergreen initiative inviting creators to launch small projects on Kickstarter
- C. Spike Trotman led a discussion at New York ComicCon called “Advanced Kickstarter Skills”
- Craighton Berman hosted a Kickstarter Project Jam with creators in Minneapolis, MN, and created a zine to help creators through the process of launching a small-batch product on Kickstarter
- Hope Nicholson led a conversation at San Diego ComicCon called "Kickstart Your Comic Like a Pro"
