Hundreds of Oregon entrepreneurs have hit the jackpot on Kickstarter.com, the world's largest online funding platform. To date, more than 3,360 people in Oregon have posted their projects to the crowd-funding website, hoping to reach their funding goals. And since the site's launch in 2009, 5.9 million people around the globe have pledged over $1 billion, funding more than 58,000 creative projects.

Watch this OB Original Video about three Oregon companies and how crowd-funding "kickstarted" their businesses.

Featured Companies:
Windcatcher Technology LLC: An innovator in rapid inflation technology
Bootleg Botanicals: A supplier in natural liquor infusions
Music Millennium: The oldest record store in the Pacific Northwest
