BCKickstart Basics

Who is BCKickstart for?
BCKickstart is open to Barnsley College and University Campus Barnsley Students, who have registered with the Enterprise Department, that want funding towards support for a business or idea.
What do backers get in return?
Backers that support a project on Kickstarter get an inside look at the creative process, and help that project come to life. Project creators keep 100% ownership of their work, and BCKickstart cannot be used to offer equity, financial returns, or to solicit loans.
What are the fees?
Please see FAQ’s on PayPal fees
Where do projects come from?
The projects are drawn from Barnsley College Enterprise Department and the iTrust start-up scheme, which is supported by Barnsley Chronicle.

Kickstart Basics: Accountability

Who is responsible for completing a project as promised?
It’s the project creator’s responsibility to complete their project. BCKickstart does not guarantee projects, or investigate a creator’s ability to complete their project. On BCKickstart, donators ultimately decide the validity and worthiness of a project by whether they decide to fund it.
How do backers know if a project will follow through?
Once a project is completed, an article will be placed on the BCKickstart blog, with details of how the money has been used and a personal thank you to all donors. For more information about how BCKickstart works, visit our FAQ’s
