Governments are (very slowly) starting to encourage early investment in start-ups. What if they did it in a way that made investing in start-ups within reach for those who have less to invest? 

Imagine an indiegogo where you contribute up to €10,000 and can offset a portion of that against your taxes. 

How will your concept support web entrepreneurship?

Further encourages investment in start-ups by providing a financial benefit.

What kinds of resources will be needed to get this concept off the ground and scale it?

Legislation change Could work with current crowdfunding sites (e.g., http://www.seedrs.com/ in the UK)

How could we get started?

Identify countries most open to changing legislation Work to educate people on what it means to invest in start-ups - the upsides and the risks

This is definitely an idea that can be implemented. Already, governments are giving tax subsidies when you donate to charities. This definitely has the potential to go far.
