For crowdfunding projects on Kickstarter filling clear gaps in the market, it seems true that it can only take a matter of days before a project is fully funded. With this in mind, Kickstarter has proposed a challenge: for the month of March, they will be conducting an initiative to see just how long it takes for projects to get funded. And for taking part, they'll try to help you along the way.

Last week, Kickstarter announced their All in 1 initiative, which asks those hoping to fund a project to seek funding on their site with only one week to do it.
Throughout the month, Kickstarter will support these promotions with extra zeal on their editorial and social channels to ensure your campaign runs as smoothly and successfully as possible (all you have to do is launch and notify them at firstname.lastname@example.org). They also suggest running your project in line with these proposed themes:
1s and 0s — Go binary: offer digital rewards only.
1-Hit Wonder — Offer a single reward tier.
1 Night Only — Create a one-time event or experience.
1st-Time Creators — Never run a project before? Now's the time.
There's no telling how this experiment will go—some projects will succeed while others are sure to flop. However, it will certainly be an interesting study in just how long it takes for projects to pick up steam; also what kinds of crowdfunding campaigns find backers in the shortest amount of time. If you feel you're one of the projects that's sure to reach the stars, it may be worth taking up the challenge and getting some serious help from Kickstarter on your week-long journey.
