A Kickstart For New Ideas

Via Ceo’s For Cities

If your entrepreneurs and creative communities are looking for alternative funding models, here’s a site that offers itself as a platform for funding new endeavors for artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, journalists, inventors, explorers and more.

Kickstarter taps into ideas of crowdsourcing as a means of funding “creativity and ambition”, in the belief that:

  • A good idea, communicated well, can spread fast and wide.
  • A large group of people can be a tremendous source of money and encouragement.

People can pitch their big idea, request support and offer benefits in online profiles where others can browse these big ideas and pledge a contribution if they wish.
