Customer development and recruitment are difficult for early-stage projects.
Run a campaign where you ask friends, family, and your target demographic to put aside pre-set amounts of their time to help you in the future.
We will use the time you pledge to this campaign to perfect our answers to these questions:
We'll start using pledged time after the campaign ends.
Your name and photo will appear on our site in our "hall of founders." Pledge now to mark your place in innovation history and in our hearts. Submit a 300x300 pixel photograph of yourself with your pledge and it will go right up on the wall.
Get this fancy bottle of entrepreneurialism treatment. You give this bottle to an entreprenuer in your life whom you care about. The bottle includes a promise from you to pledge 10 hours to their project and it entitles them to a 50% discount on their CrowdRaising campaign. It's mints, btw.
We'll send you this cardboard virtual reality viewer signed by all the members of our team. The things that you can accomplish with the power of the crowd are only limited by your imagination. We hope this VR viewer stimulates that imagination. It also comes with a video of the founders showing you how to assemble your new VR viewer and how to find virtual reality puppies.
As launch partners, we'll be spending a lot of time together building your campaign. To top that off, we'll figure out a way to play a game of "escape the room" with you and 5 of your friends. Whether it's in person or via video conference, we're going to purposely get into a room just so we can escape from it together.
He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me. That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe, for the moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition, seems to have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature, when she made them, like fire, expansible over all space, without lessening their density in any point, and like the air in which we breathe, move, and have our physical being, incapable of confinement or exclusive appropriation.
