Reddit has today launched a new crowd funding website which they have dubbed Redditmade, designed to turn designs that were made in the Reddit community into actual products.
However according to Reddit it will be more than just a normal crowd funding website and will reportedly connect creators of projects with sourcing partners to create these goods.
Here’s a description of the service from Reddit:
“Redditmade is a new place to turn the best designs and products by the community into reality. redditmade gives you the flexibility to create almost anything you want, easily raise money, and support causes you care about. It’s also a great way for others to find awesome new products they’ll love and support other redditors while knowing their information and money will always be secure.”
The site has launched in Open Beta today, allowing anyone with a Reddit account to create a project on the site.
Users who create successful products after listing one can then either donate the funds received to a charity or to an individual to raise money for good causes, as well as being able to sell the product they have created.
