Most people know about http://kickstarter.com/, and I've also come across rockethub.com and invested.in. I'm worried my project is too techie for kickstarter and rockethub, and invested.in does not appear to have generated very much funding yet. Are there other sites that assist with non-venture startup funding (I would like to avoid angel/VC funding as long as possible)?
