Residents and registered entities outside of the countries where projects are allowed cannot launch projects. However, you can launch a project on Kickstarter by taking steps to do business where projects are allowed, and meeting our requirements.
For instance, you may be able to launch a project in the US by using Stripe Atlas, a service provided by Kickstarter's payment processor, Stripe. Stripe Atlas enables creators located outside of the United States to incorporate companies in the United States with local bank accounts, then run projects in USD on Kickstarter.
With Stripe Atlas, Stripe will assist you in incorporating a company with a government issued tax ID number. Then, when setting up your project on Kickstarter, you can indicate that you are raising funds on behalf of a business in the United States, and use the information of your newly incorporated entity. The main individual setting up the project on the entity’s behalf can be based outside of the United States, and can verify using their local information without the need for a United States SSN (Social Security Number).
Keep in mind, it's important to understand the obligations of incorporating a company, and Kickstarter is not able to guarantee your approval for Stripe Atlas or other programs. Kickstarter also cannot provide legal or tax advice, so you may want to contact a lawyer or financial professional for any questions you might have. Finally, Kickstarter does not endorse Stripe Atlas or make any recommendation or guarantee as to the suitability of the service for your needs. You are encouraged to consult with your own attorney or tax professional in connection with any decision to start a new business.
