Crowdfunding is becoming a popular source of raising money. In the last five years, interest has gone from nearly nothing to more than $700 million raised. Even security technology startups are doing it successfully (see Pixy, Canary, the NFC ring as examples).
Now, a security integrator from Flint, Michigan has started the Big Brother Project, a crowdfunding effort to raise $30,000 for a school surveillance system. Can they match the success of security technology startups?
