New Crowdfunding Platform, ScitechStarter, Focuses on Science and Technology Innovators
Date:11/19/2012

of pledge amounts that a project owner can request: fixed minimums, unspecified amounts, fixed overall amounts or multiple suggested amounts. Project owners will only receive the money they raised when they have reached their stated goal amount. This also means that the amounts that funders pledged will be cancelled if the total goal amount is not met. ScitechStarter allows projects to collect more than the goal amount by default, a process which is called overfunding. It is the discretion of the project owner to override this setting and disable overfunding.

Project funders can provide financial support for multiple projects and may receive RSS and feed updates from project owners. ScitechStarter also enables funders to post comments on projects and project updates and offer advice and assistance to project owners.

Additionally, as part of their agreement for using the website, project owners must devise project-related rewards for their funders. Suggestions for rewards include prototypes or models of products developed during the project, signed first copies of a science fiction novel, a meet-and-dine event with inventors, limited-edition gadgets, newly-discovered planets named after the funder and so on.

But Baylon is not stopping with the reward-based system. As the United States moves to make crowd investing legal in January 2013, he is developing the capability for ScitechStarter.com. "Whether you're a student, professional, faculty or someone with a curious mind, our goal is to make it easy as possible for you to start a project or fund your favorite ones," he said.

For more information, interested parties can contact ScitechStarter personnel at http://scitechstarter.com/contactus.
