When we launched the Crowdtilt API in December, our goal was to empower anyone and everyone to take advantage of group payments. Hundreds of developers have reached out to start hacking away on cool apps—but hundreds more have reached out looking for a solution that doesn't require hardcore coding expertise.
Enter Crowdhoster. Our aim is for you to launch your own custom crowdfunding site without having to touch a line of code. Inspired by Wordpress, we turned to an open source project to serve as the backbone of the site code. Selfstarter was the obvious choice here, thanks to the hard work of the crazy-talented Lockitron team. This led us to the two main aspects of our plan:
Crowdhoster is invite-only at the moment as we get things up and running smoothly. We're eager to chat with folks about their ideas for crowdfunded projects.
And to the open source community: please join us in continuing to make the Selfstarter project better and better. We're picturing analytics tools, layout themes, plugins...the sky is the limit.
When groups of people pool resources together for a common objective, amazing things happen. We've only scratched the surface of this powerful movement—so go grab an invite and let's bring that idea of yours to life!
