Have you got an amazing idea? But no funds to produce it? Why not use the internet and hope your idea goes viral?! http://www.kickstarter.com/ is a great sight for raising capital. You do need to provide your backers with something, either a prototype, limited edition, or in some cases a mention in the credits. My favorite is the Capture Camera Clip System. Peter is currently being funded with over 2180% of his goal...that means his goal was to raise $10,000 and currently he sits at $218,000 raised.
Check this site out and see what the power of many can do! I better get mine before it's too late!
