Backer News offers a consistently updated list of crowdfunding projects from Kickstarter and IndieGoGo.
Backer News is one of the cleanest and most logically designed crowdfunding sites on the web. All projects are organized in endless list form, making it easy to discover interesting things as you scroll past. The site sources its projects from several crowdfunding sites, including popular sites like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo. The projects greatly vary in terms of service offered, from a dress that helps you change clothes without ever getting naked to a device that helps customize the flavor of your whiskey. You can upvote projects to ensure they stay at the top of the Backer News list if you find them interesting.
Although Backer News displays the most interesting projects from Kickstarter and IndieGoGo, it’s not actually a crowdfunding platform itself. That means you won’t necessarily have the opportunity to support projects using Backer News, but it makes it easier to find cool projects that you can then help fund on different crowdfunding sites. Backer News also clearly depicts the project’s monetary goal as well as when the fundraising ends, so you can be sure to support a project at the right time. It’s fun to browse the site’s three categories — Live, Latest and All Time — checking out cool and interesting projects and business ideas in need of some support.
