Yesterday was a big day for our portfolio company Kickstarter.
They launched in Japan, a market that has been dying for Kickstarter to come to for years.
Here’s a couple photos from the launch event in Tokyo yesterday:

I backed a couple Japanese projects today, and I suspect I will be backing a lot of them in the future.

Japan represents the creativity, imagination, and innovation that Kickstarter is home to as well as any country in the world and I am so happy that they are now on Kickstarter.
