Crowdfunding Expert Kendall Almerico Discusses Scientists Using Crowdfunding to Replace Research Grants
Date:9/13/2013

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) September 13, 2013

Crowdfunding expert Kendall Almerico, CEO of crowd funding site ClickStartMe, recently discussed how scientists have turned to crowdfunding to underwrite research, rather than relying solely on grants. “Scientists are seeking non-traditional routes to underwrite research, like crowdfunding,” crowd funding expert Almerico says. “Public grants and investments are drying up for an increasing number of scientists, leaving them to seek alternative sources of money. And crowdfunding is filling that void.”

With lack of funding forcing many scientists to delay or cancel research work, crowdfunding is a natural fit, Almerico says. Almerico cited a recent Washington Times article that discussed how scientist Ethan Perlstein had turned to the Internet, social media and crowdfunding to raise money for his efforts. “This scientist repeated the oft-heard mantra about government grant funding drying up,” Almerico said. “But he went the crowdfunding route, and raised the funding he needed to pursue his research.”

Almerico notes that Perlstein raised more than $25,000 for his project on drug discovery. Perlstein said that crowdfunding projects will have greater success if researchers put sufficient energy into their campaign and even tweeted that “crowdfunding is the gateway drug for independent scientists.”
