Crowd Supply works with creators from anywhere in the world, but for everyone, the process is the same. So, here’s a comprehensive list of everything needed to launch your campaign on Crowd Supply once you have a signed your Statement of Work. Your Crowd Supply campaign team will work with you to create and gather this information in your campaign’s repo, turn it into a private campaign page for your review, and refine the campaign page and collateral until it is ready for launch.
Obviously, in order to complete many of the tasks on this list, you’ll need to have some sort of prototype in hand.
