Ideal for inventors, makers and tinkerers, Quirky is a crowdfunding community and platform. Described as one of the top fundraising sites by Forbes, Quirky enables hands-on creatives to collaborate and contribute financially. In addition to leveraging donations to make a product a reality, it also encourages engagement among its like-minded users.

Members of the crowdfunding community begin the process by submitting an idea. People can vote online for the thousands of submitted ideas and help inventors to make their ideas better. Quirky holds a weekly ritual every Thursday where their team debates the best ideas of the week. People can watch live as it all goes down at HQ in New York. This is the process by which they determine which projects will get worked on.
