''Calendar effects and crowdfunded projects''
 
 
In this study, we investigate the calendar effects – days of the week, months, and national holidays – on the success of projects in raising funds during crowdfunding campaigns. We base our results on 18,803 crowdfunded projects on Ulule, the leading reward-based crowdfunding platform in France, from 2010 to 2016, resulting in 671,954 project-day observations. We find that the number of contributions is 22% smaller during the weekend and 9% smaller during summer vacations. Economically, it amounts to 10% and 17% of the median goal.
