To build wealth, put your money at risk. To build character, put yourself at risk.

First, thank you to all of our supporters, backers, and investors! We’ve done it with your help!

By The Numbers – 60 Days of Meetings

While I am very much a ‘seasoned’ entrepreneur and fully understand the fine print of raising money, history is always fuzzy when it comes to [how much work you must actually do] to get money in the door. It’s simply HARD WORK. Even my ChatGPT and AI would tell you that raising money for any type of project is a full-time role. This is to be expected.

I am always reminded of stoic ideas whenever I raise money: You can never control outcome, only what you put into your work. This is absolutely the case when it comes to fundraising.

What Did We Learn?

While I didn’t ‘learn’ much from the fundraising process itself, the FEEDBACK we got throughout the 60 days was absolutely outstanding. If anything, doing a Kickstarter campaign was exactly what we needed as a forcing function to ship product, get feedback, and improve our product and add backlog items for improvement into our sprints. We achieved so much and have really begun to hone in our platform focus, our user personas, and our go-to-market strategy. In bullet points, our learning is quite simple:

FINAL BOSS? – Nope. Just the Beginning

Now that we’ve raised over $260,000 of our $250,000 goal, we’re really just beginning.

Having some funding will help us this year improve our product to where it needs to be. I’m considering this success as a small seed round to keep the wheels moving.

While the amount of hard work was necessary for maturity as a company and personally for me, we begin the even harder work of building an amazing product and seeking Venture Funding to go even bigger.

I’m so proud of what our team has accomplished this past 2023. 2024 has just begun and the max pain of raising a $5M venture round will begin soon enough.

Am I masochistic enough?

Thank you to all who have supported us in 2023. I can’t wait for our team to deliver an automotive/motorsport platform that has never been seen in the market before. We have a long way to go, and we’re really just getting started.

She’s looking beautiful!
