I'm Mikkel Steen co-founder of the new crowdfunding platform for art - Artstarter. The team and I are incredibly excited to be on PH today. We want to make art available to everyone! We created, what we think is, an amazing platform where people can preorder limited edition artworks from some of the best artists in the world and I think we already have a nice line-up! :D Please check it out and we are open to all of your feedback :) And AMA, we'll be available all day to answer any questions you might have e.g.: Q "who is the tallest of the founders?" A "That would have to be me ;) You guys rock!

Hey Mikkel, this is awesome! Just signed up for the Hornsleth contest. It took me about a minute to find out what it was all about. I highly recommend you to state more clearly "above the fold", what you do and what's the benefit. You'll lose lots of people if they have to see the About or FAQ page. I actually find it quite fun, that the most frequently asked question is: "What is Artstarter" .. I would go for something like: A crowdfunding-platform for art Buy limited edition art from selected international artists Best of luck from a Danish art lover.

Back to the roots, when artists were funded by patrons :) The idea sounds cool, especially for artists that may not "know the people you have to know", I've already heard many young artists mentioning how hard it was to get started because of that. While I browsed the various projects, it was not immediately obvious to me what was the fundraising goal for each one. I see a price, but it seems to be the preorder one. Maybe you should make the goal more clear so that people don't have the feeling it's more a shop than a fundraising platform.
Mikkel Artboost SteenMaker@mikkel_steen · CEO & Co-founder of Artboost
@oelmekki Exactly! That's the goal we try to achieve! I see your point - it's definitely a thing worth looking into :) Thanks for the valuable feedback!

This is truly awesome! What kinds of payment do you accept? :)
Mikkel Artboost SteenMaker@mikkel_steen · CEO & Co-founder of Artboost
@mastergaard Thanks a lot Mathias! :D Right now we accept all types of credit cards and are looking into accepting bitcoins behind the scenes ;) Art for bitcoins - how cool is that? :D
@mikkel_steen That should do ;) And the bitcoin would be a great addition as well :D Do you track down the artists or are they applying to start a campaign themselves?
Mikkel Artboost SteenMaker@mikkel_steen · CEO & Co-founder of Artboost
@mastergaard Actually it has been a mix. We've used our network from the Artboost project to find amazing artists, which we could make special deals with to make their art affordable for the masses :) But cool artist are also starting to reach out and I promise that it's also the top of the iceberg we're showing right now ;)
@mikkel_steen Sounds great! I'm looking forward to browsing all those artworks! :D
Mikkel Artboost SteenMaker@mikkel_steen · CEO & Co-founder of Artboost
@mastergaard Looking forward to reveal all the awesome new pieces :D

Your checkout-page is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen! Q: How is the proces if I am an artist on your platform? :)
Mikkel Artboost SteenMaker@mikkel_steen · CEO & Co-founder of Artboost
@andreas_nielsen Thanks! :) That really means a lot. I have to admit I'm quite satisfied with what we got ;) A: Actually we try to make it as easy as possible for the artist that we collaborate with. That means that we handle marketing, production, customer relationship and distribution, so the artists can focus on doing what they do best, which is creative awesome art that will inspire the world to do better :D
