Kickstarter. Here is a novel funding model. Crowd sourced funding. I spotted this on the back of the Glif (the iPhone tripod mount I wrote about a few weeks back) they used Kiskstarter to crowdsource the funding to do a feasibility study, business and design and development plan. Pretty impressive- me thinks. There is a similar project due to kick off in Ireland soon called

It will be really interesting to see how this performs and impacts in this damn recession.
