The Kickstarter Fulfillment Report

According to the latest Kickstarter Fulfillment Report, 9% of all projects fail to deliver rewards, failure rates are consistent across all categories, projects raising less than a thousand dollars fail the most and not all failures are considered bad.

The core question behind the professor’s research was whether a creator delivered rewards as promised آ— not whether the creative work was actually made. For example, if a creator successfully finished a film funded through Kickstarter but backers didn’t get a copy of their DVD, the project was counted as "failed."

  • 9% of Kickstarter projects failed to deliver rewards

  • 8% of dollars pledged went to failed projects

  • 7% of backers failed to receive their chosen reward

  • 65% of backers agreed or strongly agreed with the statement that "the reward was delivered on time"
