Kickstarter plans North American expansion, launches in Canada this summer

That’s right Canucks, Kickstarter’s launching in your neck of the woods before the midnight sun sets for the season. The crowdfunding site released a teaser page today, announcing that it’ll open up to Canada-based projects later this summer. It’s not the first site of its kind to accept submissions from north of the border, but if Indiegogo hasn’t been drawing in the results you need, you’ll soon be able to give it a go on another platform. The Kickstarter team is mum on an exact launch date, but with a bit less than three months left in summer, the clock is ticking.
