Users set a target they need to reach in a certain time frame, and they also offer various rewards depending on how much visiting philanthropists are willing to donate.

A project from Dr Laurence Gill and PhD research student Joanne MacMahon of Trinity College Dublin’s Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering is the site’s highest-grossing campaign so far, having raised more than €24,000 from 201 donors.

Crowdfund uk blog. UKIE Crowd Funding Report - A Proposal to Facilitate Crowd Funding in the UK - February 2012. Access to finance is a key barrier to growing the interactive entertainment industry in the UK.
UKIE believes that crowd funding models can provide a valuable source of finance for games and interactive entertainment businesses, particularly the large number of innovative and creative start-ups and SMEs that are emerging in the UK. The interactive entertainment industry is at the forefront of the adoption of crowd funding and crowd sourcing in the digital sector; a recent American crowd funding project (Double Fine Adventure) recently broke records by raising over $1.5 million in 24 hours on the crowd funding platform Kickstarter. However, we also believe that crowd funding has the potential for much wider use by SMEs in other sectors and wider community based projects throughout the UK. CROWDFUNDING LAW UK.
