Crowd funding website Kickstarter have announced they are bringing the service Australia and New Zealand. This is great news for ambitious creative types down under, that need new ways of funding innovative projects. While Aussie’s have been able to fund projects from the US site, their origin means we’re hit with international delivery charges. An Australian Kickstarter would allow Aussies to create, fund and hopefully receive products without international charges.
