SINGAPORE — August 26th , 2021 — CMON LTD and BackerKit are thrilled to announce a new partnership that cements BackerKit’s platform as CMON’s exclusive crowdfunding pledge manager. With 48 campaigns and nearly $100M raised, CMON is the most funded Kickstarter creator of all time across every category. BackerKit, meanwhile, has become many creators’ go-to post-campaign platform, having provided services for over 12,000 campaigns in nearly every crowdfunding category.
CMON is a trailblazer in the crowdfunding world and was one of the first companies to use an in-house aftermarket pledge manager that allowed backers greater control over their pledges. This marks the first time CMON has partnered with a third party to manage this aspect of their business.
“For a while now, we’ve been interested in working with an outside pledge management platform, one that can allow us to shift our resources and tighten our focus on making and delivering huge, high-quality games to our fans,” said Isa Leite, CMON's Head of Production. “BackerKit is truly the partner we’ve been hoping for. Their battle-tested platform gives us the robust features and flexibility we need to ensure a smoother customer experience than ever before. The BackerKit team is dedicated to elevating each project they work on, and we couldn’t be happier with our new partnership.”
“From the very beginnings of BackerKit, we’ve always held CMON’s crowdfunding process to be the gold standard,” says Maxwell Salzberg, BackerKit Co-Founder. “We see it as a huge feather in our cap that the most experienced crowdfunder on earth has chosen BackerKit to help them bring their amazing games to Kickstarter and beyond.”
CMON looks forward to supporting all its current and future backers with the help of BackerKit, starting with the Pledge Manager for Zombicide: Undead or Alive very soon.
