Garden Stack's crowdfunding plan in a nutshell

Updated: Mar 16, 2023


Crowdfunding is designed to be a win-win for founders and backers alike. As a backer, you get a heavy discount by supporting a crowdfunding idea. Garden Stack has an interest in offering you such a big discount to get momentum going early on in the crowdfunding campaign. By encouraging people to sign up early, it becomes more likely that the campaign will gain traction and turn Garden Stack into a commercial reality. So you get a big discount, and Garden Stack gets better odds of taking off.


So there is no catch. By signing up at a low price, you help Garden Stack to gain momentum early on. This maximises Garden Stack's chances of success, while you get a Garden Stack device at a historic discount. It's a win-win.



Also, the way Kickstarter works, if Garden Stack fails to secure its target fundraising amount, you will never be billed. This is because the fundraising amount represents how much we need to raise in order to get the ball rolling. If we can't raise enough, it won't be viable to manufacture and ship the product out to people, and so nobody is charged, all bets are off.
