Self-Proclaimed Kickstarter Reject Creates Open Source Crowdfunding Website

Written by Dan Marom

After Kickstarter released stringent rules governing hardware projects, startup company Lockitron decided it was time to take action. To fund their hardware project, the founders wrote their source crowdfunding platform, which is now open sourced. According to their website, selfstarter.usto get started, “all you need is a great product.”

Lockitron is their own first success story; since being rejected by Kickstarter, the wireless door lock raised more than 1000% of their funding goal.
