About Experiment

Experiment is an online platform for discovering, funding, and sharing science.

We're based in San Francisco, CA. We're scientists, designers, and technologists passionate about helping ideas grow. Our mission is to democratize science.

Where does the most impactful science come from? What makes science beautiful? What if anyone could be a scientist? There are a lot of big questions in science, but these are the ones we ask.

The people who make Experiment

We are the kids who got in trouble in chemistry lab for setting the things on fire that we were not supposed to set on fire.
