Here's two ideas to think about real quick. Crowdsourcing is a way of funding new business projects where the public can contribute small amounts of money in exchange for small returns, like a mention on the media or a product to keep.
Gravity Light is a crowdsourced project Jim White just pinged us about. It's a light that works by using the energy produced by moving a weight. Read about it here. Do you like the idea? How about crowdsourcing - do you think it's a worthwhile way to fund a business? Would you consider contributing to a crowdsourced project and using the return as a holiday gift? That's the Zoobird brainstorm idea! Thanks, Jim!
