Before the internet, two things happened to good ideas. They came to fruition or died. Sometimes those ideas died at the drawing board while others died from lack of finances.
With the birth of the internet came crowdfunding – the act of asking consumers to invest in a product while still in the prototype phase. The result has been thousands of products and ideas backed by interested buyers and some of the best items on the market.
Here are five awesome EDC items that got their start thanks to crowdfunding.
 Keyport Pivot Key Organizer [$19.99]
 Minimalist Crabby Wallet [$14.95]
