Kickstarter in Europe

Kickstarter is a popular crowd-funding website, a platform where artists, inventors, and innovators of all kinds can fundraise for just about any project imaginable, taking donations from as small $1 to as large as contributors are generous enough to offer. Investors are often just everyday people with an interest in the prospective creation, people who are often rewarded with perks in exchange for donations. The best part is that the website is about so much more than raising money. Through Kickstarter, creators can begin to develop the basis for a community to engage with and enjoy the project even when it is still in its planning stages.

And now Kickstarter is coming to continental Europe.

Kickstarter, which already had a basis in the U.S., U.K., Ireland, N.Z., and Australia, recently began broaching Europe by opening up its website to the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway. The goal is to “become available to more European countries,” a heads-up for any European creators who might be interested in investing some time in using Kickstarter’s services.
