Crowdfunding for student-driven innovation

Ignite your genius

Bring ideas to life

Build dreams together


Bertie makes resources available to students so they can really make their ideas into reality. Use our platform to find a manufacturer or music producer who will give you a firm price quote for use in calculating a fundraising target. Follow our step-by-step guides for building your project, making an amazing video, building a marketing campaign and even printing pledge cards that you can hand out to friends and family.


As a Sponsor, you make a real difference in people’s lives—for both adults and students. By pledging money to projects, you support human creativity and ingenuity and you help to validate people’s ideas. Sponsors of Bertie projects become educators, but in a real world context. We thank you for your support.


Bertie holds Genius Expos and Contests at schools to showcase creative works made by students and the community. Bertie supplements traditional math, science, language arts and fine arts programs by providing an alternative outlet for students’ imaginations. Students emerge from a Bertie project armed with a pragmatic sense of the real world and better equipped for employment.


Bertie partners with trusted service providers to make resources available to students and community-members. The ultimate goal is to make sure project creators have everything they need to succeed.
