We weren’t exactly sure what to expect when we launched operation #KickstartGlampingSanDiego
We built this company from the ground-up and we invested everything we had into it. It was important for us to see the business grow organically, while we fine tuned our operation and set a standard for outdoor hospitality.
It became apparent to us last year that we would need to expand in order to meet our growing demand. We discussed various options of obtaining capital, but in the end we decided to take a chance and try crowd-funding.
Instead of putting ourselves in a situation where we could lose control of our company, or get into more debt with a traditional loan, we started planning for operation #KickstartGlampingSanDiego in late September of 2018.
We were especially intrigued with the consumer centric nature of crowdfunding and giving our supporters a chance to be part of these exciting new tourism trends.
Our decision paid off. We’re into day 24 of the campaign and we’ve raised $24,452. Our expansion project is 98% funded with 7 days to go.
We’re hoping to exceed our $25,000 goal at the rate we're going, all thanks to our backers and company supporters.
