The SME Innovation Alliance (SMEIA) knows full well that neither funding SMEs nor protecting their IP works. But who cares when people are ‘just doing their job’, while waiting for their pension and the finance industry is ‘self-regulating’?
Well, internet entrepreneurs who know the crowd clearly do care. Otherwise, crowdfunding would not have become a new force for the financial establishment to reckon with. Blessed be the web with its social media, once again!
So I’ve finalised my submission, asking for £12,500 to match potential funding by a software development entrepreneur. The product is a “Mobile Image Explorer” – for mobile phones or browsers – and as a general user portal, to demonstrate to companies what the potential is.
Am I speaking the right language for end users? Only their pledges will tell. Will you want to be the first by any chance?
