1. GravityLight is a revolutionary new approach to storing energy and creating illumination. It takes only 3 seconds to lift the weight which powers GravityLight, creating 30 minutes of light on its descent. For free.

    Following the initial inspiration of using gravity, and years of perspiration, we have refined the design and it is now ready for production. We need your help to fund the tooling, manufacture and distribution of at least 1000 gravity powered lights. We will gift them to villagers in both Africa and India to use regularly. The follow-up research will tell us how well the lights met their needs, and enable us to refine the design for a more efficient MK2 version.

    To achieve this we launched a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo and we have been thrilled by the support shown during the first 24 hours of the campaign start. But it's not yet over we still need your support by contributing to the project and spreading the word.

  3. We live in a time where anything is possible and anything can be built - as long as we can bring together the right people around the right ideas.

    Startup Weekend is a global initiative that brings together passionate individuals with unique skill sets and experiences, then challenges them to turn their ideas into reality over the course of a weekend.

    This film captures the journey of two participants at Startup Weekend in Toronto: Ronan Levy (Delirious App) and Eugene Woo (Vizualize.me), and explores what it means to live the life of a startup entrepreneur.

    ‘Startup Weekend’ was screened at Startup Weekend Toronto on Friday November 18th 2011.

  4. A place to learn how to make bikes. You keep the skills, your first bike goes to someone who really needs it.

    The Bicycle Academy is a new enterprise providing people with the skills and facilities to design and make their own bikes.

    To get the project up and running we’re going to crowd fund The Bicycle Academy using peoplefund and that’s why we need your help. We’ve got the workshop, but haven’t got anything to fill it with - We need to buy brazing stations, a lathe, a pillar drill, jigs and a full complement of bike tools.

    Please support us by making a pledge during our 6 week crowd funding campaign at peoplefund.it/the-bicycle-academy from the 1st of November.

    Thank you
