In collaboration with CommerceNet and ChipIn (a CommerceNet portfolio company), the University of California, Berkeley launched an online marketplace to help students raise funds to support their projects to change the world. The Big Ideas @ Berkeley marketplace (http://bigideas.berkeley.edu/) promotes student projects aimed at addressing some of the biggest challenges of the 21st century, such as clean energy, safe drinking water, global poverty reduction, technology-based entrepreneurship, and health care for the uninsured.Development of the marketplace was supported by CommerceNet; the technology for the site was developed by ChipIn (www.chipin.com), an online service that provides a quick, easy and secure way of collecting money from groups of people.CommerceNet encourages you to learn more about and support these bold projects!Read more at: http://www.berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2006/12/13_ideas.shtml
