Kickstarter celebrated its third birthday on Saturday. Three years is an exciting milestone (hooray!) but Kickstarter actually began long before.
Perry first had the idea for Kickstarter shortly after he moved to New Orleans in 2001. (He recently wrote about that experience on his blog.) Perry and I met after he moved back to Brooklyn in 2005, and we soon started working on the idea together. Perry was introduced to Charles through a mutual friend in 2007, and our founding team was complete.
