    How to Navigate Crowdfunding for Your Business

    How to Navigate Crowdfunding for Your Business

    Launching a business is no easy task, and funding it can be even harder. That's where crowdfunding comes in: by crowdfunding your business, you can pre-sell products or services to interested investors and get the startup cash you need. But before you launch your campaign, there are a few things you need to know. 
    I’m excited to share guest, Dan Demsky, founder of Unbound Merino, who is sharing all his tips for how to get a product off the ground using crowdfunding and how it is possible to start a hyper successful business even if you are creative at heart.
    Main Topics:
    - How to get a product off-the-ground using crowdfunding
    - What it’s like to start and run a company with your best friends
    - How to scale a direct to consumer (D2C) business, and more!

    Key Takeaways:
    - It’s possible to still use crowdfunding to start, scale and gain serious traction.
    - It’s possible to start a hyper successful business even if you are creative at heart.
    - It’s possible to run a company with your friends without going insane. 
    More About Our Guest:
    Unbound Merino was created by three lifelong friends. We spent our high school days taking road trips across America to see our favorite bands. Every time we came home, all we could think about was saving enough money for the next big adventure.
    It didn’t take long until we turned our sights on the rest of the world. Like many seasoned travelers, we were drawn to the incredible natural benefits of Merino wool. The fabric was perfectly suited for travel, but it was typically designed as high performance outdoor activewear, with flashy logos and unnecessary embellishments. Sure, it performed great on a hike, but we wanted something that did that and also looked great at a restaurant, in a museum, at a rock concert and out on the town.
    After years of researching, designing, and prototyping - we partnered with industry leaders to create the most stylish, versatile and highest performing Merino wool clothing that’s made specifically for travel and everyday life.
    Our purpose is to create simple, high performance clothing that is versatile enough for any occasion.
    Today, Unbound Merino is worn by countless fellow travelers all over the world. Our clothing is designed to help pack and own less so you can focus your energy on the experiences that matter most. Our promise is freedom through simplicity.
