Revamping the Biological Reverse Kickstarter.

I'd like to make a list of 100 names and choose the best few.
Then make a dozen different versions of those.

It doesn't have to keep the acronym "BRK."

So far we've come up with:

World Domination Fund
Bootcamp Reinforcement Kickstarter
Bootcamp Reinforcement Kudos
Bootcamp Reinforcement Kingdom
Bootcamp Reinforcement Kudos
World Domination Fund
Boot Enticement Program
Boot Encouragement Effort
Printing Press Fund
Boot Media Incentive
The Permie Production Pot
Bootcamp Booty Brigade

I feel like there is a name out there that is 10x better than any of these.  Can you help?

I just spent some time with a thesaurus. I don't expect any of these to be "the winner" but hopefully someone clever will be helped by slicing and dicing these for ideas:

Bootcamp Transmission Fund
Permaculture Knowledge Sharing Incentive
Bootcamp Publicity Reward
Boot Recruiting Grant
Sustainable Bootcamp Fellowship
Sharing Support Subsidy
Learning Letters Scholarship
Wheaton Labs Publication Stipend
Wheaton Bootcamp Exhibition Endowment
Public Project Purse
Boot Blitz Bounty

I really like the idea of including the word Bounty in there. I didn't really know about BRK and it wasn't clear what it was until I read more on it. Having bounty in the name might make it more clear if the goal is to get more sponsors for the program.

It's a pledge system, those who are in the bootcamp can post pictures/video of what they are doing, and for every 100 days of such posts people pledge something in return. Some offer cash, others crafted items, etc. This provides some income for the boots, who would otherwise have to leave to find employment to pay bills like for a cell phone or car insurance.

Boot Loot.

Could also be B.O.O.T. L.O.O.T if someone is feeling more need to be creative with acronyms

S.T.R.A.P could also be cool to be said as "Bootstraps."

My husband suggested Permaculture Terrorist Allocation Fund XD

But on a serious note: Bootcamp Incentives or Kudos sounds like a more descriptive term. Since PIE is already taken, I want to call it "Cookies" Kudos for Cool, Industrious or Exciting Stuff? [KooCkIES, needs a better font for that "i"]

Please take my idea and make Cookies or CAKE work better =)

Boots Onsite Microgrants

I feel like "micro" works since it's giving small amounts. And it tells people who arent a boot that it's small scale enough that the average not-onsite-person could chip in effectively.

The initial "Kickstarter" part of BRK does give folks the idea they can help bootstrap something..

To play off that: "Bootstrap Boots With Microgrants"? It's a bit of a mouthful but hopefully not too much. And then gets more clear about the "what".

Part of me feels like I want to put "permaculture" in the name more than even "bootcamp," because if this thing works, an outsiders first response will be "whoa look at all these cool permaculture things these people are doing."
