Experiment.com: Crowdfunding Open Science Platform for Science Research

Experiment is an online, crowdfunding, Open Science/Open Access platform for advancing the discovery, funding, and sharing of science, research, and innovative technologies. Experiment uses a Public Funding Model where backers funds go directly to the scientist/innovator/ researcher, so there is no middleman overhead involved (compared to 50-60% when receiving a grant at a university). Experiment is an all-or-nothing funding platform, meaning that the project much reach its target funding goal or no one's pledges are charged. Anyone can start an experiment project as long as the results are shared openly. All projects are rigorously reviewed, provided feedback, and scientifically approved by the Experiment Team.
