Outgrow.Me Is Where Your Favorite Kickstarter and IndieGoGo Projects Go When You Can Actually Buy Them


By Nikola Krajacic, July 20, 2012

Kickstarter and IndieGoGo are probably the largest crowdfunding platforms on the Web; raising crazy amounts of money for projects that people all across the world are working on. Usually, if you fund a project with a certain amount of money, you’ll get a finished product, once it’s complete and ready to hit the market.

However, the problem with these sites is obvious: when they become popular, you can hardly find special projects worth investing in or buying the finished product. Yes, some of them are listed as “the best” and shown on the front page, but there are so many more great ideas just hidden from the public. Outgrow.Me is here to correct that.

Crowdfunding In One Place

Outgrow.Me is, as they define themselves, a place to discover successfully funded Kickstarter & IndieGoGo projects which are currently available for purchase. So, no more searching and digging for the next great and innovative thing you’re going to buy; Outgrow.Me makes it much easier. By combining Kickstarter and IndieGoGo and giving you the option to filter out those results, Outgrow.Me becomes the ultimate search tool for crowdfunded projects.

Currently, there are only a dozen filters available: iPhone accessories, iPad accessories, pens and stylus pens, design, electronics, fun & games, fashion, photography, food, sporting equipment, bicycling, everything but apple, miscellaneous and finally – under $25. Additionally, you can filter products by their availability, so you can browse those that are orderable or the ones ready to be pre-ordered.

Showcase of Products

Once you open up a product, you’ll see its photography and (if available) its video campaign. Of course, you’ll be able to like it on Facebook and share it on Twitter as well as rate in on Outgrow.Me. If you’ll want to buy the product, there will be a link to the products’ site – which tells us that Outgrow.Me servers for the sole purpose of being a simple catalog for crowdfunded projects.

If you’re a Kickstarter or IndieGoGo member with projects that were successfully funded, you should consider geting your product listed on Outgrow.Me; they really are trying hard to catch each successful projects, but sometimes they miss a few. Send an email to help@outgrow.me and your product will be listed.
