Amazon Launchpad Teams With Kickstarter On Collection

Amazon Launchpad has teamed with Kickstarter to launch a collection featuring more than 300 Kickstarter products available for purchase on Amazon.com.

Customers shopping the Kickstarter Collection can browse a variety of categories, including electronics, wireless accessories, home and kitchen, books, movies and television, and toys and games, as well as themes such as “Always Be Learning,” and “Inventing The Future.”

“At Amazon, we work hard to offer the widest possible selection of products so that customers can find anything and everything they might want to buy online. Working with Kickstarter is a great way for us to hear directly from customers what products they care about, since they truly hold the power to bring these products to life,” said Jim Adkins, vp/Amazon. “We created the Amazon Launchpad program a year ago to serve creators, inventors, and startups. Our goal is to enable them to reach Amazon’s hundreds of millions of customers and to overcome one of the biggest challenges any startup faces, bringing their product to market successfully.”

“Kickstarter helps independent creators find the resources, courage, and community they need to bring their creative projects to life,” said Yancey Strickler, CEO and co-founder of Kickstarter. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with Amazon Launchpad on creating a new path for those projects to be discovered, experienced, and loved.”
