Our mission is to fund science that moves us forward.

As a society, we are in a position to study, learn, and innovate more than ever before. Yet there is one major bottleneck: funding. In recent years, it's become increasingly difficult for new ideas to get off the ground, especially the innovative and high-risk ideas with the biggest impact.

Since 2010, 80% of principal investigators spend more time writing grant proposals and 67% are struggling with less funding. 'Big science' has become synonymous with 'budget cuts'.

This is about our ability to invest in our future. This is about Science for the people, by the people.

How it Works


Researchers post projects needing funding on Experiment


They share their project to fundraise and spread awareness


Once a project reaches its goal, supporters are rewarded with insight behind the science


What is the all-or-nothing funding model?

The project must reach 100% or more of the funding goal, or no one is charged.

Who can back a project?

Anyone! As long as you have a credit card, you can become a project backer.

What is the Experiment fee?

We take a 5% fee and a 3% card processing fee, only if the project reaches the funding goal. If it doesn't, no one is charged and there are no fees.
