You guys did an amazing job with the campaign. We’d love to hear more about how you went about it, what were the opportunities, the challenges, the roadblocks etc.
Steve – Our mission with this campaign is to get exposure for Kate’s expedition to Antarctica. We hope to find an investor or supporter that has a passion for biking and wants to help Kate become the first person to cross Antarctica on a bike. We believe that the opportunity here for a unique and exciting documentary is just a sponsor away. So with that, we have embarked on getting the word out through Kickstarter and other media outlets.
What would be your guru mantra that you’d like to give to budding entrepreneurs for funding?
Steve – Believe in yourself and never ever give up! People will always doubt you, think you’re crazy and will tell you it’s impossible or a waste. But these are the majority that has no vision or will take risks. A true entrepreneur is one that risks it all for what they believe in.

And finally, if given a chance to reach out to all the entrepreneurs and wantrepreneurs out there, what will you tell them?
Steve – Investors (and backers) will invest in the entrepreneur first and the idea or product second. So you must convince people that you will never quit. Then surround yourself with believers and positive people. They are the ones that will pull you through and help you reach your goal.
