Niche startup hopes to support and create interesting adult-only products and services.

Offbeatr proclaims itself as a “Kickstarer for porn” that allows users to fund projects relating to the adult fantasy industry. Some of these crowdfunded projects have included erotic services, pornography, and games. The startup was founded by Ben Tao and Eric Lai, who believe that there is a market for their niche service. Tao explained that:

For Offbeatr it’s about going directly to the fans and supporters and engaging them in the process and giving content creators access to capital they previously never had access to. By getting this capital the industry will start to innovate and take more risks with business models, products they make, and how they reach out to their customers.
