FundaGeek Partners With Inventors' Group
Yucca Valley-based FundaGeek, an online, crowdfunding site headed by Dan Gutierrez, said this week that it has entered into a partnership with the United Inventors Association of America (UIA). According to FundaGeek, the group will use FundaGeek as a crowdfunding resource to help inventors with projects. The two firms also said they are working with home shopping channel QVC, as part of a new program called QVC Sprouts. That deal calls for inventors with retail ready products to be selected and placed on the QVC website, and to be given the chance to give sales presentations on QVC. The firms did not detail how FundaGeek ties into those efforts.
