You probably know what is a start-up, right? If not let me just tell you what is a start-up. Suppose you have an idea for a product or a service or anything like making a film or album etc and you want to implement this idea and start your own company. So initially your company will be known as a start-up. But in order to do that you need a large amount of fund. Now what amount of fund you need depends on your business idea. So from where to get this huge fund?
There are many ways to get funding. You can apply for a loan or contact investors and pitch them your idea etc. On April 29, 2008, Kickstarter was launched. So now you might be having the question that what is Kickstarter? Well, it’s a project that strives towards funding people’s start-up. It connects you with the people all around the world who are willing to help you. You can upload your idea on its website and if people around the world like your idea and if they want, they can pledge you some amount of money. In return the creator(or the team) i.e. the one who is the owner of the start-up can give them something in return as a token of thanks. For example, he can give you the limited edition of his start-up’s product or give the product of his start-up at a cheaper price etc.
There are thousands of start-ups on the Kickstart’s website. But in this article, I am going to tell you about 10 Kickstarter start-ups that are amazing in my opinion and you can check them out yourself on the website and if you like them you can also donate some money or buy it for yourself.

We all love to listen to music when we are riding. But it’s very clumsy and comfortable to wear headphones with the helmet. It’s ver inconvenient. Also if you want to talk to someone while driving as it is risky to take out your phone from your pocket and then talk without stopping the vehicle.
This is where Ahead comes into the play. It turns any helmet into a smart helmet. It has the following features.
Yes, that small triangular object is able to convert any helmet into a smart helmet. Now it would look like that sound quality of the audio delivered through that device would be very poor considering the size and many other functionalities fitted into the small package but that is not the case. It doesn’t have bad sound quality at all because, instead of speakers, Ahead uses an oscillator to pass sound directly into your helmet so that you can clearly hear music, conversations, and other voice feedback from your phone. This works on any helmet, open or closed, padded or thin. You can pledge some money and buy it on the official page.
