Amazon Launchpad has announced the launch of the Kickstarter Collection featuring products by exciting new startups now available for purchase on Amazon Launchpad. Startups featured in the Kickstarter Collection include Gamely, SAM Labs and Musaic, among others.
“Startups from across Europe are always looking for new ways to bring their inventions to market, whilst our customers want to discover new, cutting-edge products for Christmas and beyond,” said Francois Saugier, Head of EU Seller Services, Amazon. “That is why we launched Amazon Launchpad to provide startups with the support they need to help bring their ideas to life, and by working with Kickstarter we will be increasing our selection for customers across Europe.”
Since launching a year ago, Amazon Launchpad has worked with over 100 leading venture capital firms, startup accelerators, and crowd-funding platforms to help more than 1,000 startups launch new products. Kickstarter, a global funding platform for creative projects, has enabled a number of companies to get off the ground, including those that range from gadgets and electronics to toys and home goods.
Customers shopping the Kickstarter Collection can browse a variety of categories, including Electronics, Home & Kitchen, and Toys & Games, as well as themes such as STEM Products, Exquisite Objects, Inventing The Future, and Stay Connected.
“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 startups to launch their products and potentially be discovered by millions of new customers.”
Amazon Launchpad works with capital firms, startup accelerators, and crowd-funding platforms to help startups launch innovative new products in the U.S., U.K., China, Germany, and France. New startups are joining the Amazon Launchpad program every day to overcome many of the challenges associated with launching new products, using Amazon’s retail expertise and infrastructure to create awareness and drive sales.
