Kickstarter Opens Up For UK Ideas

Crowd funding is where people from any background can seek financial help for an idea that they have. One of the more popular firms in this industry is Kickstarter and now it is easier for UK based entrepreneurs to get involved in the Kickstarter phenomenon. It should be noted that Kickstarter is not a charity and the processing fees for funded projects is currently around 3%.

According to the posting on the Kickstarter Blog, this is what has changed;

Beginning October 31, people in the United Kingdom will be able to launch their projects on Kickstarter. Beginning today, people in the UK can get started building their projects by clicking on the “Start a new project” button on the Start page and selecting the UK as their country. When we’re ready for projects to launch on October 31, we’ll send an email letting them know that they can hit the launch button whenever they’re ready.
