    A new study by the University of Pennsylvania looks at how Kickstarter impacts the economy. The Kickstarter blog has a run down of the findings:

    • Employed 283,000 part-time collaborators in bringing creative projects to life.
    • Created 8,800 new companies and nonprofits, and 29,600 full-time jobs.
    • Generated more than $5.3 billion in direct economic impact for those creators and their communities.
