This 2013 excerpt is from BBC, Jly 29.
The Awesome Foundation funds “awesome” ideas and projects ranging from community aquaponic gardens to re-enactions of scenes from the Indiana Jones films.
The $1,000 (£650) grant is awarded with an extremely simple and quick process, no strings attached – the grantee does not even need to finish the project.
A spy-like shoe-telephone developed into an ambitious project for a new free backup mobile communication system.
And some, like the Indiana Jones scenes, are just fun.
True innovation needed space, fun and sometimes just a small amount of money to get started.
