Got a great idea in Australia or New Zealand, but no money to see it through? Help is on the way. Kickstarter has put up a teaser page revealing that it will be accepting crowdfunding projects based in both countries "in the very near future." It's Kickstarter's latest expansion as the company looks to boost its international presence. That effort has been a slow crawl thus far; Kickstarter has branched out to the UK and later Canada since launching in the US. To familiarize local creatives with its service, the company will be holding "Kickstarter Schools" in Australia over the next few weeks, with the first two hitting Sydney and Melbourne next week. There's no word yet on when the company plans to tackle its first non-English speaking territory.
