    I have seen a lot of small items on kickstarter make a huge amount of money. If you make new products and need investments it is the best way I have come up with to get some start-up cash. Was wondering if anyone had any ideas about how to get a project into kickstarter when living in Canada or other Countries other than the US and Mexico I believe is their limits..

    You need one BIG and radical idea. Then you still need a little bit of money to support that. Like most sites, Kickstart does limit countries. Check their policies. If you are still out of luck, you will have to find a partner who's American. That would be the only way.

    Thanks for the quick replies guys. I took a quick look at their site and they just don't seem to have the buzz that Kickstarter does. Already looking for an American JV haha

    Keep in mind that stoking a crowd into funding a project requires a GREAT deal of labor and contributors. According to the rules of many of these sites, if you don't raise a minimum number of funding commitments, the project fails and any cash collected goes back to the investors. All that promotional labor, down the drain.

    It's best to plan to raise more than you actually need via crowd funding, and lower your announced fundraising target on the site. Then take the commitment totals you are able to raise to traditional angel investors, and pitch it to them as 'early money' you have on hand to get the project going. Many funders are reluctant to be the first ones to contribute to a venture, but once they see "the train is in motion," they'll jump onboard.
