    I'm looking to get a custom python script built for scraping Kickstarter.

    It will include:
    - information scraped from kickstarter projects
    - prediction of whether or not a project will be funded

    I cannot yet post links but for the information required: I have a thread in BlackHat Tools outlining the scraping requirements; and TimelordHarry's response provides a link to the GitHub repo outlining the prediction functionality.

    How to predict whether or not a project will be funded? There were projects which had a lot of traction towards the end, but couldnt complete the target. There are others which have missed by small amounts.

    You will need a machine learning guy for that. IMO, those aren't cheap. You are better off looking at Kaggle instead.

    Hi again,
    The script link I sent you can be used with Tensorflow after the scraping to predict whether or not the project will be funded. It is a very simple process and there are a lot of tutorials online.
    If you are basically a beginner in python, spend a day or so learning few basics and start copy-pasting the code from stack overflow. There are only a few qualified people on BHW who can do it, and it will cost you a lot (a lot $500+).
    Feel free to contact me, if you need help along the way.
