Who We Are
Dodo is a worldwide crowdfunding platform for biotechnology and life sciences related projects and research. We connect people, scientists, business companies and institutions allowing them to engage in bio-related projects, redefining the way we know science through its democratization.
Raising funds for basic or applied research is one of the big issues that are hindering the development of science and new technologies worldwide. Most of the traditional funding opportunities are available only to people with a PhD degree or Professors. Strong barriers exist for students and citizen-scientists with great ideas who want to raise funds for the development of their projects. Besides, research funding opportunities are available almost exclusively for low-risk investigation, limiting the development of high-risk but promising projects. There are also a lot of people based in countries struggling with poverty and urgent matters where science projects funding simply cannot be a priority. Dodo is the global solution to prevent the extinction of all these promising but unfunded projects.
It is also a new way for scientists to showcase their research to the public, a powerful tool for science outreach, bringing scientists and the community together. In exchange for small donations, people will receive a range of rewards depending on the project owner: acknowledgements in scientific papers, personal updates and insights on the research progress, finalized products. Dodofunding.com is headquartered in Santiago, Chile, with offices in João Pessoa, Brasil.

Research Project Fundraising
Dodofunding.com is a venue for fundraising. Dodofunding.com allows certain users (“Creators” or “Researchers”) to list projects (“Projects”) and raise funds from other users (“Collaborators”, “Donors”, “Supporters”, or “Backers”). All funds are collected through a third party processor, which we may change at any time or from time to time in our sole discretion (the “Processor”). User credit card information never touches Dodo’s servers.
You acknowledge and agree that dodofunding.com shall not be liable for Your interactions with any organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Dodo service, and You hereby release and waive any and all claims, demands and/or damages You may have or assert against dodofunding.com arising from or related to any such interactions. This includes, but is not limited to, delivery of goods and services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with listings on Dodo. Dodofunding.com does not oversee the performance or punctuality of projects. Dodofunding.com is not responsible for any damage or loss incurred as a result of any such dealings. All dealings are solely between You and such organizations and/or individuals. Dodo is under no obligation to become involved in disputes between Backers and Researchers, or between site members and any third party. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event of a dispute, You hereby release dodofunding.com, its officers, directors, employees, agents and successors in rights from any and all claims, damages and demands of every kind, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and our service.
Though dodofunding.com cannot be held liable for the actions of a Researcher, Researchers are nevertheless wholly responsible for fulfilling obligations both implied and stated in any project listing they create. Dodo reserves the right, but has no obligation, to cancel, interrupt or suspend a project listing and refund all associated members’ payments at any time for any reason. Dodo reserves the right, but has no obligation, to remove a project listing from public listings for any reason.
Dodofunding.com makes no guarantees regarding the performance or fairness of the Processor. Additionally, because of occasional failures of some credit cards, Dodo cannot guarantee the full receipt of the targeted amount.
Project Creators may initiate refunds at their own discretion. Dodofunding.com is not responsible for issuing refunds for funds that have been collected by Project Creators.
If changed circumstances should at some future time cause the continuation of the program supported to be inappropriate or impractical, or any of the restrictions on the use of the fund become obsolete, inappropriate or impracticable as determined by the Board of Regents, then the university may redesignate the purpose of these funds to another fund that adheres as closely as possible to the donor(s)’ original intent.
