Crowdfunding app rewards donors with space on a digital wall

Back in 2006 UK university student Alex Tew raised more than USD 1 million by selling 100-pixel blocks of space on the Million Dollar Homepage. Inspired to bring such capabilities to everyone, Supporter Wall is a site that lets anyone put a like-minded app on their own web page to raise funds for a specific project or accept ongoing donations.


Now in alpha, New York-based Supporter Wall is an interactive grid that can be customized and installed on any website, allowing visitors to donate small amounts of money in exchange for their own spot on the wall. Each time they do, the square they purchase displays the photo and link of their choice; the funds they pay, meanwhile, go to the wall owner's PayPal account.
