Here's an article on RocketHub - the science oriented crowd source (kickstarter) site I mentioned last week....

I talked with Alon Hillel-Tuch (CFO) at Maker Faire.  He had some interesting suggestions ...
1) RocketHub.org is a site that helps train scientists, etc to do crowd funding
2) To help vet grant proposals, have them do a crowd funding project ... this shows how well they can interact and promote their project.  If they can't get funding, they probably are not worth the grant $$.
3)  if they do get crowd funding, there are sources that may provide matching funds.   A project could do a $1000 crowd funding, get $1000 matching from HSP and another $1000 from RocketHub's match program.
