Funding Watch: BigLeap — Crowd-Funding Prize and Reward Network for Social Good

The mission of this team of Internet and software veterans is to “…enable all of us to solve important social problems through crowd-funding and crowd-sourcing.” They identified three steps in their Challenge process:

  1. “Define an audacious goal”
  2. “Specify a prize or reward amount”
  3. “Define the winning criteria”
  4. “Inspire others to support the Challenge”

“Historically, incentive challenges and competitions with significant prizes or rewards have resulted in quantum-leap progress and innovation. Traditionally only a select few large organizations have used this tool. Now it’s time to put this power into the hands of everyone.”

Student voice? Transition? Let’s put our ideas to work…
