That's helpful. But I wonder if it works anything like if your house burns down, the insurance company doesn't just hand over all the money. You have to meet certain milestones in rebuilding and you get the money in bits and pieces.
Hmm, I wonder if there's a track record published anywhere on the projects that have been funded and then taken to fruition and actually gone to the backers, etc.
My inquiry is more curiousity than anything else. I've put my backing on my Amex card, and Amex backs the card user seemingly no matter what. We shall see.
