Crowdfunding campaigns aren't going anywhere as evidenced by a new Amazon page devoted entirely to selling products from small beginnings, dubbed the Kickstarter Collection. Amazon partnered with Kickstarter to sell more than 300 products that were made possible due to the fundraising platform. The Amazon store is part of their Launchpad initiative, which showcases wares from startups to help small businesses raise their profiles.

Shoppers can browse the Kickstarter Collection by category, such as wireless accessories or movies and TV, or by theme, like STEM Products and 'Always Be Learning.' Stock includes everything from Oculus Rift and Pebble smartwatches to less well-known items. Even though many of the products have been available on Amazon before, they are now housed together under the Kickstarter roof.
