Awesome business, awesome idea. Tell us, where did the idea for Takin It To The Streets come from?
The idea was actually inspired by a presentation at a conference I attended this past Spring in Chicago about “Kids Bowl Free”. The owner of the company got a luxury motorcoach and decked it out with his logo and took it on a national tour of the U.S. promoting bowling around the country. I thought, why not try the same thing promoting business startups and entrepreneurship? Of course, I’ve been known to go on adventures – cycling coast to coast, driving from Florida to Alaska, and a driving trek to Argentina. So for me, it was a way to combine two passions – travel and entrepreneurship.
It’s very impressive that you have helped clients raise over $160 million for their businesses. Can you share with us some concrete ways you have helped them do so, do you consult on fundraising?
