Kickstarter Consultancy


Our record speaks for itself.

We have crowdfunding experience dating back to 1998, over $1.5 million raised for our own projects, and consultation for a wide range of successful third-party campaigns.


Ben Dobyns, our Kickstarter designer, has programmed industry-leading tools for creating and projecting campaign successes. His proprietary spreadsheets can handle stretch goals, a variety of shipping solutions, reconciliation with actuals, and much more with the click of a single button. He can plan every facet of your campaign with confidence that the numbers will be correct, the goals appropriate, and the pledge levels compelling.

From design to the daily work of running a campaign to reconciling your final crowdfunding revenue, our services are flexible to meet your unique needs.

Whatever your needs, we look forward to helping you out!

And we stand by our unique pledge—we won’t take on a campaign that we don’t believe in. If we agree to offer our Advanced or Premium services for your crowdfunding project, it’s because we believe that your project can and should succeed.

“This was one of the best organized fulfillments I’ve ever seen. Ben’s spreadsheets highly influenced our own thinking of how to track orders and get The Maze of Games to our customers.”
Mike Selinker | Maze of Games Kickstarter: Lone Shark Games

“Ben has developed a reliable, repeatable system to properly budget and allocate your Kickstarter SAFELY. And by “safely” I mean not losing money on Kickstarter rewards, costs and fulfillment. It’s brilliant, it’s detailed, and I swear by it.”
Don Early | Multiple Campaigns, Dead Gentlemen Productions

“Ben Dobyns in one short meeting gave me the outline of how to run a successful Kickstarter campaign. Without his guidance and advice I’m sure the first campaign I ran would not have been half as successful, nor the other 5 that have all funded using the advice he gave. Definitely an expert on how to get the most out of Kickstarter.”
Julie Haehn | Unexploded Cow Campaign: Cheapass Games

“Ben is extremely personable and accessible, one-stop shopping for everything we needed to know about how to launch our Kickstarter and get our project off the ground. The Midas touch, very few have the amount of experience and success raising money and generating audience using Kickstarter as Ben.”
Lisa Hurwitz | The Automat Kickstarter
