The move comes as part of a partnership with Fondeadora, a crowdfunding platform started by René Serrano and Norman Müller five years ago when they found out Kickstarter couldn’t be used in Mexico.
In its life, Fodeadora has helped fund thousands of projects in Mexico.
Now the site will direct users to Kickstarter.
During the company’s first 100 days in Mexico, it will be donating its 5 percent fee from every project launched in the country to local charitable organizations. These organizations will be announced in the near future.
