I heard about Kickstarter during taking a course held by Government, I have to complete that course in order to make myself qualify enough to apply a business starting loans. During the class, a mentor talked about crowdfunding and angels' investment.
Well, crowdfunding is NOT a popular thing in Hong Kong, only a very small group of people has heard of it. And due to the language problem, most of the people would not participate because they cannot understand the words.......
So it is very hard to promote a campaign in Hong Kong and in China.
Just an FYI - China has their own version of crowdfunding site, in Chinese of course. But I can't help to not think about how many FAKE products are on the site? Sorry to say that... But it's true.
