More success with crowdfunding than the Technology Strategy Board?

My frustration with the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) has boiled over after attending the last workshop: sooo much effort for so many people and eventually 10 projects may get £60,000…

While I have my application for a Mobile Image Explorer sitting on the desks of their ‘independent’ assessors, I have therefore studied the crowd funding scene. There are supposed to be 44 platforms in the UK according to the global site crowdsourcing.com that comprises more than 1,800 crowd funders and publishes good industry reports.

This UK directory lists 16 sites with good details.

I wrote Mobile Image Explorer as a project for www.sponsume.com but have yet to define the rewards for supporting me. Back to the software developer, before you can support me.

      Sorry, JM. The link wasn’t actually live yet. The project was not accepted, as I need to spell out the rewards in more detail. Will get round to doing that, too.
