Community-funding website HQ coming to Brooklyn

A popular community-funding website is bringing its headquarters to Brooklyn. Kickstarter is a forum that helps people raise money for personal projects. There is no maximum donation limit, but no money changes hands if a project fails to reach its fundraising goal on deadline. The company was originally based in Manhattan, but is scheduled to move into the Eberhard-Faber pencil factory in Greenpoint.
