US Crowdfunding Colossus Will Launch Website for Irish Entrepreneurs

Kickstarter, the most popular online US-based crowdfunding platfrom, has announced plans to open an Irish website within months. It will be viewed as a rival to Fundit, one of the three crowdfunding platforms already based in Irish shores.

To date, 90 Irish projects have been launched on American and UK Kickstarter websites. Ever since Kickstarter was launched five years ago, 6.6 million people have pledged more than $1 billion to fund 65,000 projects.
