The city of Chicago has launched its own officially curated Kickstarter page.
The page is titled SEED Chicago. It's intended to spotlight small businesses and community development projects that will bring jobs, economic activity and revitalization to Chicago's neighborhoods.
Among the first crop of crowd-funding campaigns are a kid-geared summer photography project in Logan Square, a fresh food market in Garfield Park and a teen-geared coding training program in Englewood.
