Amazon this week launched a page dedicated to Kickstarter projects, collecting more than 300 products under a single hub. The new Kickstarter Collection is now available at Amazon Launchpad, the company's digital storefront for hardware startups and crowdfunded projects. Successful Kickstarter projects available on the new page include Piper, Zivix, and Prynt, and they cover a wide range of products.
Amazon announced Launchpad last year with more than 200 products, including those from successful Kickstarter campaigns. In a press release announcing the Kickstarter Collection, Amazon said that more than 1,000 startups have now introduced products on Launchpad.
"We created the Amazon Launchpad program a year ago to serve creators, inventors, and startups," Jim Adkins, Amazon vice president, said in a statement. "Our goal is to enable them to reach Amazon’s hundreds of millions of customers and to overcome one of the biggest challenges any startup faces – bringing their product to market successfully."
