Funding Open Source with Peace, Love and Happiness

A session at Railsberry 2012

Friday 20th April, 2012

12:10pm to 1:10pm (WMT)

Ideas are cheap, but turning them into something more tangible takes a combination of time and money. The two popular choices for funding the growth and development of your idea are either investment or bootstrapping, but what about crowd funding?

Crowd funding is more than just starting up a Kickstarter project, it is about making people and donators feel like they are a part of your story and project. Also, why use Kickstarter at all? Why not roll your own, or get businesses and friends and the community behind you?

This talk will discuss how to approach crowdfunding in an open source world, from pledgie, to kickstarter, to roll your own, to what to give away, and including the all important drunk funding!
