Kickstarter Launches in Canada

Kickstarter Launches in Canada

People based in Canada can now build Kickstarter projects, the crowdfunding platform announced Monday. To begin, Canadian users must click on the site’s “Start a new project” button and select “Canada” in the drop-down list, according to a blog post.
