Silicon Hills News exceeded their CrowdFunding goal



CrowdFundBeat News Wire “Silicon Hills News has exceeded its goal of raising $7,345 on Kickstarter for its first digital and print magazine highlighting technology resources and entrepreneurs in Central Texas to be distributed at South by Southwest Interactive.

So far, the journalism project is 119 percent funded with 81 backers and less than two days to go.

The digital and print magazine will contain profiles of local startup companies along with photos along with a list of startup resources helpful to technology companies in the Central Texas region. It will also feature about 10 pages of local advertisements from companies supporting the Central Texas technology industry. is a two-year-old bootstrapped startup technology news site that reaches more than 20,000 unique readers every month on its website and thousands more through social media. We’re the premier technology news site covering the community in Central Texas. This project will be our first paper product.

The magazine provides great marketing for our site as well as spreading the word about Austin and San Antonio technology startups and resources.  We are also hosting a startup pitch competition panel at SXSW this year with the Austin Technology Incubator at the Central Texas Angel Network. The magazine will be distributed at the panel as well as at select parties and events at SXSW and the Capital Factory, a tech accelerator and incubator in Austin and Geekdom, a coworking and high-tech accelerator in San Antonio.

The key to a successful journalism Kickstarter is to really know how much you need to raise. While some high profile projects pull in millions, on average, successful projects raise about $7,400. Also, read all of the articles on doing a successful crowdfunding site and learn from the experiences of others. And I highly recommend participating in the community and contributing to other people’s projects. It gives you an understanding for what gets funded and why and it helps others out. It’s important to give back.”
