Kickstarter stats: 84% of the top 50 projects missed their initial shipping date

84% of the top 50 Kickstarter projects didn't ship on their initial promised shipping date

CNNMoney have looked into Kickstarter, and their investigation has found that the top 50 projects on Kickstarter raised $40.3 million in funding with close to 420,000 backers. But, there's some more interesting news to come from this - that 84% of the top 50 most funded Kickstarter campaigns missed their initial shipping date.

All of the projects that CNNMoney looked into had a shipping date of November 2012 or earlier, and just eight campaigns managed to ship projects to their backers in a timely manner. 16 projects still remained unshipped.


26 products that eventually shipped missed their initial shipping date by almost two months - but remember that these stats are only accurate with the top 50 projects, not the rest of the thousands of campaigns.
