Crowdfunding Expert Kendall Almerico Discusses Crowdfunding for Science
Date:7/9/2013

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) July 08, 2013

Crowdfunding expert Kendall Almerico, CEO of popular crowdfunding website ClickStartMe, recently discussed how online crowdfunding is making waves in a new field: Science.

“With funding cuts and government grants drying up, crowdfunding scientific research is a new and growing field," crowdfunding guru Almerico said. “Crowdfunding scientific development and research gives people a chance to be involved with some incredible societal developments.”

Not only are scientific tools, apps and hardware being crowdfunded, but Almerico notes that basic scientific research is starting to be funded online through various crowdfunding portals like ClickStartMe.com. “While scientific research does not fit the mold of typical rewards-based crowdfunding, there is a market of supporters and donors who want to be a part of cutting-edge research, even if there is no tangible reward involved for their donation,” Almerico says. “But, supporters will often get an inside look at the research, and a copy of the finished research study.”

Almerico says that crowdfunding can level the playing field for scientific development and research. “An undergraduate biology student with a great idea will not likely be able to get grants that are eaten up by professors with PhDs,” Almerico notes. “But that same student can go to the crowd and receive funding to make the research happen.”

Kendall Almerico is the CEO of ClickStartMe, the crowdfunding site that provides individuals and businesses with an easy-to-use website to raise funds through online crowdfunding. Almerico is available for interviews and speaking engagements.
