Today Kickstarter, the funding platform for creative projects, has finally launched in the UK after much excitement and anticipation!

To celebrate this fantastic news, we wanted to find a way to support the best ideas coming out of this week’s Enabled by Design-athon (Friday 2 – Saturday 3 November 2012 at Ravensbourne), to explore ways of taking these forward with the possibility of setting up projects on Kickstarter. Therefore, we’re pleased to announce that Enabled by Design and global design firm IDEO, along with other partners are planning to offer a mentoring session (at a later date) to these teams to:

  • Understand what it would take to launch the idea on Kickstarter
  • Refine the concept further so the proposition is really tight
  • Potentially make introductions to partners who might be interested in taking the ideas forward

We’ll be keeping you updated on the Enabled by Design-athon and its outcomes, so watch this space for more details!
