Kickstarter has launched in the UK, providing a platform for inventors and investors to share their ideas for those who were unable to do so with the US service.
For those unaware, Kickstarter is a website where people can pitch their product or service ideas, and request donations from the public in an attempt to get the start up off of the ground. The person or company with the idea can set a funding target of their desire, if this target isn’t hit then the investors get their money back and the project doesn’t go ahead. However if it all goes to plan, the product production goes ahead and the people that invested get a prize as a thank you, usually the product they invested in.
Today the start up platform launched in the UK, and you can already start viewing projects that need your funding in your local area.
