Math o wefan Ariannu torfol
Lansiwyd 28 Ebrill 2009

Llwyfan ariannu torfol ydy Kickstarter.[2] Nod y cwmni yw rhoi hwb i brosiectau creadigol.[3] Dywed Kickstarter eu bod wedi derbyn dros $1 biliwn mewn addewidion ariannol a hynny gan 5.7 miliwn o fuddsoddwyr ar gyfer 135,000 o brosiectau cerdd, ffilm, sioeau llwyfan, comics, newyddiadaeth, gemau fideo a phrosiectau yn ymwneud â bwyd.[4]

Mae'r 'buddsoddwyr' yn eu tro'n derbyn gwobrau am gefnogi'r mentrau.[5] Gellir olrhain y cysyniad gwreiddiol sydd y tu ôl i'r noddi celfyddydol hwn i fodel lle mae noddwyr yn tanysgrifio'n uniongyrchol gyda'r artist neu'r artistiaid er mwyn eu cefnogi'n ariannol.[6]
