For a number of reasons I am finding it really difficult to find financial support for my post grad research and have come across the idea of crowd funding. Usually this is used as a way of funding a viable, potentially profitable business or sympathetic/valuable enough community or charity project. Eventually i also found two sites that helped post grads crowd source funding for their research too – but they were for scientist only. This was rather disappointing.
Could anyone recommend a crowd funding site that would support non science based research in the UK?
If not there is a huge gap in the market – with only a few thousand pounds investment you could fill that gap in a few months. I would if I could but I have books to read. Please someone pick up what I am putting down. .
