Louisville Area Crowd Funding Campaigns

Louisville Area Crowd Funding Campaigns

Kickstarter and Indiegogo are crowd funding websites that help creators find the resources and support they need to bring their ideas to life. You can check there are many good offers are available for funding, investment, loans or we can say all related to financial. This week, we’re taking a look at several Louisville area crowd-funded campaigns that deserve your attention.

We encourage you to check these crowd funding campaigns out and support local nerds trying to make their dreams a reality.

Bagged & Bored

Link: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/bagged-bored-season-2-film#/

Platform: Inddiegogo

Goal: $12,000

Bagged & Borded

Bagged & Bored is a comedy web series that follows the retail misadventures of comic shop owner Kent Carney and his offbeat gang of employees! The show has its own unique style in the form of comic book parodies and pop culture references, all while focusing on a fun story with original characters.

Season one of the web series resonated with many people in the Louisville arts community, and season two looks to expand on that and create something bigger and better.

Affordable Dice Towers and Trays

Platform: Kickstarter

Goal: $100

Dice Tower“We started A&G Wood Working to fill a need of affordable dice towers to the gamer’s that are just like us. We would see dice towers for hundreds of dollars and feel that it wasn’t fair to a gamer who would rather spend that money on games. We started making them one at a time and selling them and we personally saw that its possible to provide towers at an affordable cost. This project has a low funding rate to help us grow our shop to do more kick starters in the future, but at the same time giving people affordable dice towers. This is our second Kick starter; already having one successfully funded and delivered on under our belt, this Kick starter is to expand, and be able to host a web site.”

8 Bit Coffee

Platform: Kickstarter

Goal: $10,000

8Bit Coffee

“Are you a gamer, cosplayer, geek/nerd, or do you just love good coffee? If so, you’re one of us!

Walk into any café in the United States and you will find someone sitting at their laptop sipping coffee and almost no one talking or enjoying themselves. Cafes overseas can be quite different; some feature costumed characters serving up delicious drinks while others have colorful atmospheres that inspires their visitors to create amazing works of art. It’s time to ditch the library-style café and open a coffee shop where customers enjoy their unique experience.

This is why 8-Bit Coffee was started. Nerds, geeks, gamers, and cosplayers are a growing crowd of creative minds. At 8-Bit Coffee, cosplayers can meet up and show off their hard work as well as attend workshops to help perfect their craft. Lovers of board games will be able to take advantage of an inventory of games or bring their own to play with their friends (without cleaning up the house.)

Once the cafe is up and running, 8-Bit Coffee will begin to schedule gatherings and skill workshops. Workshops will be set up on community feedback and instructor availability. Topics may include streaming, video editing, costume design, sewing, and more!

The $10,000 goal will provide 8-Bit Coffee the minimum capital it needs to receive a small business loan. Any additional amount will allow the company to provide additional services such as extended hours, special guests, additional workshops, meeting spaces, a photography studio, and more!

Owned and operated by a proud Louisville native and veteran.”
