Like a crowd funding platform, we enable to match those with an idea to those willing to fund it.
In this instance the ideas are scientific research ideas and the funders are those willing to donate to the researcher(s).
Those donating towards the research join the scientists on a path of discovery, receiving updates and feedback, from watching cells grow through a microscope through to peering back in time through a telescope.
“Labs” vs. Public Funding
All proposed research projects will be analysed and vetted by someone with Break Off Labs to ensure it meets the minimum standard of quality in terms of XXXXXX.
With regards to funding, unlike other platforms we are not “all-or-nothing”, but have a minimum funding pledge required before those funds are used towards projects. If however, the required funding is not met in total, in combination between Break Off Labs and externally then the funds will not be released.
[Release funds, subject to approval of donors? If request release of funds and no response within, say, 2 weeks, then release? Only if confirmation, and proof(?), that project will still continue, and have sufficient alternate funding to be seen through to completion?]
