by: Mirjam Visser, 2013-08-31 10:09:29 UTC
Sustainability Aspects: This platform of platforms is focussing on good design and pays attention to the sustainability of the designs.

The Story


There are many different crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter and others. Dutch Design Starter is different as such that it combines the good designs from different crowdfunding sites together with its own crowdfunding. It is also different in the sense that it is a not-for-profit foundation to support dutch design.

All products on the site are new to the public/consumer

The official launch is on the (free entrance) Symposium Crowdfunding for Designers at Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam
18 september 2013, 19:00 – 22:00
Presentations (in Dutch) by several platforms and crowdfunding experts. Cases, do’s and dont’s.
Registation and more information

Designers who place their project on Dutch Design Starter prior to our launch (september 18th) will get a free spot at the Dutch Design Starters stand at the Dutch Design Week event in Eindhoven 19-27th of October 2013. And they have a chance to win our Audience Award worth €2.500 to make a crowdfunding video for promoting his or her product. The Audience Award is given to the designer on our stand at the Dutch Design Week who receives the most support by the public. The support is measured in facebook likes, tweets, google-shares, repins etc.
