This crowdfunding website is distinct in that it focuses specifically on the technology sector. “This specialised way of crowdfunding that also creates the possibility for colleges and universities to get sponsorships in order to help research their projects" said Manuel Vieira, founder of Technofunding.
Citing experience of over 30 years in the technology business, Vieira notes how difficult it is to get the necessary funds for technological research and development, adding, “This is often because those responsible for granting funds do not have sufficient knowledge about the specific technology and its future prospects.”
technofunding.com, with a basic principle of “All for One”, also creates the possibility for financing scientific projects, that probably otherwise would not be possible to realise. With the Headquarters of Technofunding Ltd. in London, the first step towards the global development of the technology platform has been taken. Technofunding is available worldwide for project creators and funders. As of now, engineers, scientists, designers, and inventors have the opportunity to submit their first projects during the "sunrise period".
30th of August 2013 is the official launch date for technofunding.com;
