Dear Sir/Madam:

I think crowdfunding can serve a great need for independant inventors such as myself but only if the crowdfunding sites have a percentage of those that engage in crowdfunding other than high tech,Bio fuels and medical advancements.

Something as simple as a consumer good in houseware can bring manufacturing hopefully back to the USA

Kickstarter probably has the best format because the inventor keeps 100% ownership of their work. They only ask 5% if fully funded,great deal. I also think there is room for both the nonprofit/profit.

Now lets hope these entities stay honest and on the up and up.
