The home of board game crowdfunding

Our mission is to accelerate the making of amazing games. We're the bridge between backers and creators. Gamefound is a platform derived from the tabletop industry made for board game fans and makers. It's a place that allows creators to focus on what they do the best and helps backers get the projects they supported in the most convenient way.
We offer crowdfunding campaigns, pledge manager services (also for campaigns run on other platforms), and marketing support. Everything in one place, hassle-free.


The beginning

Gamefound creators, Awaken Realms, made their first crowdfunding campaign in 2015. And they (or maybe better: "we", as Gamefound is a part of the Awaken Realms group) learned in a hard way that if you need to have even minimum shipping options, you have to take care of it on your own. That's why we created a simplistic tool that worked as a very limited pledge manager. It didn't have a name yet but worked well enough to solve the problems of two external creators, too.
The beginning

The evolution

Soon, the platform became too slow and limited to fulfill the increasing demand of creators, so in 2016 our CTO stepped in with the Gamefound prototype. Since then, it's been evolving, and new features and improvements are added weekly. The growth of the platform accelerated in time. In March 2019 we celebrated the 100,000th backer on our platform. Exactly a year later, on the 5th of March 2020, the 100th creator launched a project.
The evolution


We've passed the mark of half a million backers, and we've already hosted projects from hundreds of creators. We feel we're ready for the next step in Gamefound's history: a robust, complete solution for both creators and backers, that can host the great board games campaign from the early draft to the very last late pledge! In February 2022 a recognized board game publisher, Ravensburger, joined us as a strategic investor.
