Charlotte Agenda recently published an article the Kannapolis Arts feels it should share, talking about how creative people in Charlotte are making a  killing on Kickstarter.

People in Charlotte are doing cool things, and they’re getting the world to pay them for it., according to Charlotte Agenda. The best of the best, it seems, comes in two categories: fantasy and hardware.

Some of the projects that have scene success include a web comic,  a strategic card game, similar to “Magic: The Gathering,” and a record album, among other projects.
