SuN could let people with similar interests help with funding or provide referrals to others who can help with funding. People who can fund receive business proposals and can pitch in for the purpose of promoting an industry or supporting new businesses with solid potential. They may ask for nothing in return, expect the amount repaid in a timely manner, expect interest, or measure progress in milestones and act as an advisor to look over operations and income statements to make sure the business is run well financially. Bootstrap capital could be from an indiidual or spread out to multiple participants funding a certain percentage or dollar amount to lower the risk of a single funder. A feedback system can let funders comment on trustworthiness and use of funds.
