CrowdFunding Platform, START.ac, Announces It is Expanding Its International Scope from the US, Canada and the UK to 36 Countries Including Australia, India, Israel, Italy and Africa
START.ac sets itself apart from Kickstarter by CrowdFunding projects from 36 countries across the globe including: Canada, Brazil, EU Members, Japan, India and South Africa effective today.
Launched on May 15th 2012, START.ac expands CrowdFunding by encouraging startup businesses, teen projects and medical products. “Those categories are literally banned by Kickstarter,” said START.ac CEO Rod Turner (Ashton Tate, Symantec – SYMC / Norton, ArtSlant).
START.ac is expanding its worldwide scope. Of the START.ac projects currently in the Fundraising stage, 23% are from outside of the U.S. Non U.S. projects in START.ac’s proprietary CrowdAudition™ have leapt to 50% and represent France, India, Israel, Italy, the Philippines, Slovenia and the United Kingdom.
“Kickstarter has been teasing the world outside the US for years, promising that they would expand. Yesterday they made another announcement that they intend to start CrowdFunding in the UK this fall,” stated Turner. "At START.ac, we are today announcing the expansion of our International CrowdFunding footprint, effective right now.”
Turner, who hails from the UK, added, “At the rate Kickstarter is going, they will be truly worldwide in 2050. I look forward to competing with them then.”
