Tobi, Sounds like a plan! I suggest do make a project on any international accepted crowdfunding plattform for the 50k (plus some reserve), we spread the link via all *NOG lists and social media and I'm confident that money will be raised in no time.
On behalf of the international network community I would like to express my appreciation for all your work and effort you made so far. -- Fredy Kuenzler Init7 (Switzerland) Ltd.
