In recent years, a number of mostly young, innovative, entrepreneurial Slovenes (or usually groups thereof) have turned to international crowdfunding websites as a viable means of raising the funding necessary to see their projects realised, and have had great success doing so. The largest of these platforms is the US-based Kickstarter, which has become so synonymous with the practice of crowdfunding – or raising venture capital via a large number of individual contributors – that its name is now often used as verb to describe the activity, in much the same way an internet search is referred to as 'googling' something.
Below we've listed some of the Slovene-based projects that have been successfully funded to date, and much more information about each of them can be found on their respective Kickstarter pages, websites and social media. If you're in Ljubljana, you can find a selection of the products for sale at Trgovina Ika on Ciril-Metodov Trg. And if you're a Slovene who has had a Kickstarter project successfully funded, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, do we can make sure to add your info to the page.
