Consano takes crowd funding to the medical arena and puts the decision into YOUR hands! What type of research would you like to support? From their website:

“Consano is a platform that enables you to donate any amount (small or large!) directly to a medical research project that matters to you. Usually medical research is paid for by large grants from government or other large funding institutions. Consano is part of a new movement to connect individuals directly to specific medical research projects. By harnessing the power of a crowd, we aggregate donations so the public can directly choose and support high quality medical research, pooling their money with others who care about the same health issues.”

    Start A Cure http://startacure.com is a donation based crowdfunding platform for funding of and building awareness about cancer research.

    1. Start a Cure focuses fundraising towards the people who want to fund research that might save their lives. With Start A Cure, researchers can reach a new audience of individual donors who have a stake in the success of cancer research.

    2. Foundations and government agencies fund less than a small percentage of cancer research, leaving literally thousands of worthy projects on the table. Start A Cure creates funding opportunities for all promising cancer research.

    3. Start A Cure is a democratic platform, where brilliant unknown PhD’s and “star” and “big name” researchers have equal opportunity to prove their projects worth to the cancer survivor community.

    Start A Cure offers a new channel towards the mass market of donors. Our platform is designed to capture public engagement in a whole new way. We know researchers and doctors have a lot to share, so we’ve built a platform that gives them a voice. We know that cancer survivors, their families, friends and supporters, have a stake in cancer research, so we created a way for them to directly support they work that they decide has the most value to them. We also know that researchers work in the dark, rarely connecting with the cancer patients whose lives they most affect. Start A Cure connects researchers and patients in their mutual fight against cancer.
