How can I raise money to build a web app?

Episode 1025 (1:38:35)

Mike from Medford, NY

Mike is planning to write an app that will help him find where he's parked the car when he goes to an event or amusement park. It uses GPS and embeds it on Google Maps. How can he advertise it?

Leo says that Mike has done an interesting thing by posting his app proposal on Kickstarter to see if people will buy the app before he writes it. Leo says it's an interesting idea, but there's no guarantee that people will get the app after they give him the money. Kickstarter is now being more stringent on conditions for proposals to raise money.
