Crowdfunding is a practice of supporting projects (such as the Tiny1) by a large number of people. Indiegogo is our choice crowdfunding platform to launch the Tiny1.
Going for crowdfunding was a conscious decision from the very beginning. Our aim is to build a community around Tiny1 and astronomy imaging. Crowdfunding brings us closer to our end users. We get product and design feedback in early stages, while users get updates on every development stage. More than anything, our backers get a chance to contribute in bringing Tiny1 to the market. And that is something to be proud of for both the backers and us.
