    However now in 2012 there are many established funding resources that can be used to raise funding finance they include :-

    Using psychology or good acting will get you a pretty penny on kickstarter. Make some wicked prizes and raffles for the winners and you are good. I used them a few times for apps and products and got well funded over what I expected. Target a specific niche, act professional, and wham get some start up money. I got funded for video production and game apps actually. It is a rinse and repeat formula.

    Thanks for the list. I was about to embark on search, but my laziness paid off :)
    Anyone has any experience with any of this?
