Kickstarter ready for Kiwis to start building projects (like, right now)

Kickstarter has announced that is ready for Australians and New Zealanders to start building their crowdfunding projects using the platform. The official go live, however, isn't until next month, which should give people plenty of time to build their campaigns.

Back in August, the US-based crowdfunding platform put up a webpage announcing that it would be open to projects from Australia and New Zealand "in the near future". 

Kiwis looking to have their projects funded via Kickstarter can now hit the "start a project" button on the website. Projects will be able to go live from November 13. 

The company has put a Q+A of how everything will work on their blog and is planning a series of ANZ workshops ahead of the November date, with one already planned for Auckland
