Crowdfunding - The next wave



It was amazing to watch Pebble come to life with the crowdfunding model as viewed by KickStarter

Never before have I been more excited than seeing those Dollars climb past the $10 000 000 mark. These guys have a product that the world believes in and this is where I think the turning point starts for funding a project. With Venture Capitalists starting to diversify by investing in multiple small investments instead of going all out in one large project and investment, this seems to mark the beginning of a new way of getting funding for your homegrown project.

Here is a list of a few crowdfunding sites to get your project kickstarted.
