Funding your Tech Startup

Very interesting concept and probably an easier audience than the Shark Tank panel. It would be interesting to see how much can be raised and the complications if a larger group of investors provided funding (versus one or a much smaller group).  Will be interested to see the reaction and how this works.

This is a discussion I'd love to see. Kickstarter has a lot of momentum behind it right now. I seem to be hearing about every day.

Chuck,  I agree with you. This forum would be fascinating and also maybe a better audience than the typical venture capital presentation. More technical, less financial.  Would be interesting to see the dynamics of the presentations.

Design West has a history of the great sessions, including the Volt teardown two years ago.

Neat. Also, you must have an idea people want.

Cabe, don't you think the bicycle projector that you wrote about would be a natural for Kickstarter?

Chuck,

I write about so much, which bike one are you referencing?
