Think of Kickstarter as funding from the masses no equity or financial crap included. Just what are you willing to give and want to receive. They have been doing a great job of helping all sorts of people get projects off the ground and I think that is worthy of a shout out. I am already thinking about a project or two that I could use funded.
The way it works is you set a goal and it needs to reach that goal within your specified time frame you get to keep all the money for the project. That acts as the push to get you in gear. So what projects have you seen that you want to help get off the ground. I am waiting with baited breath till it comes to this side of the pond but don’t worry the wheels are turning.
So check them out when you have a chance. http://www.kickstarter.com/
