“Awesome Foundation” and “Kickstarter” get your project implementedVeröffentlicht am 17. Februar 2011 von Felix Schürholz in Kategorie: CoWorking Kultur, CoWorking News International, Funding, Fundsachen, Praxisberichte, Beispiele, Best-Practice | Trackback URL | Zur Diskussion
Yesterday I presented the “Awesome Foundation“. If you have a “crazy brilliant idea” there is a good chance they will reward you with $1,000 to start your project. As $1,000 will not get you very far in most cases you will need additional funding. One of these additional sources could be “Kickstarter” that we also presented before. Now here is a project that used both of these sources successfully: “Scarf-a-day“. On the 27th of December 2010, Meredith Scheff was awarded the $1,000 by the “Awesome Foundation“. As she found the need for additional funding she also set up a Kickstarter project on the 1st of January 2011 for another $1,000. There she wrote : “This project is the recipient of an Awesome Foundation grant, but I need help to really pull this off with style.” And she did!!! At Kickstarter she raised $1,538 in 7 days. With more than $2,500 she produced the 31 scarves she set out for. At her blog, you can have a look at all of them with some background information. This is the one I like best :-) Enjoy and get inspired!!!
