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.
