Crowd Supply

I'm not quite sure what this is.

Crowd Supply

It looks cool. It sounds cool. It has pretty pictures. But what do they do exacltly?

"Crowd Supply is how engineers and designers create great products on their own terms."

That doesn't really help.

Usually when I encounter a vague description of a company on their official website, I turn to Wikipedia which usually offers a few more details about what the company actually does. In this case searching Wikipedia for 'crowd supply' didn't help much.

The top result was for 'crowd funding' but no result for 'crowd supply'

Reading through their site a little more, I can kind of get an idea of what they're about.

"You can use Crowd Supply at any stage in your project, whether you're looking for the right collaborators or ready to ship your product. Crowd Supply supports you before, during, and after your campaign."

I'm kind of imaging you might invent something, and turn to them to help you with selling it. Or producing it. Or something like that.

Whatever they do, I think I'm not nearly clever enough to need their services anytime soon.
