I plan to put the funds I've raised towards finding a partner bakery or a team of employees to help revive and expand my business producing and selling authentic Chilean cuchuflí treats. KooChooFlee has already proven successful in its brief initial run and I'm excited to see it grow with the help of my backers.
PASSION: industrial engineering
After I graduate from my industrial engineering program next year, Pave will support me as I pursue a leadership position within the industrial and manufacturing sector. Once I have some experience, I plan to start my own business and will be grateful for any guidance my backers provide as I embark on that venture.
Pave is going to enable a number of upcoming projects, most notably my first feature film. I will use the funds raised to establish an LLC and hire an attorney, line producer and more. I seek to make films outside the box of Hollywood commercialism, so support from my Pave backers is invaluable as I move forward.
Support from my Pave backers will allow my award-winning gypsy-jazz combo, The Hot Club of Detroit, to continue touring nationally. Having a new, professional-grade guitar will help our music sound as great as it's meant to sound. I'll also have the freedom to go back to school and complete my degree in music education.
PASSION: social entrepreneurship
Pave funding will help cover my MBA expenses so I can focus on expanding my already successful Street Soccer USA organization to include entrepreneurial initiatives, generating profit that will feed back into our social programs for the homeless. I look forward to working with my backers and learning from their input.
Support from my Pave backers has the potential to open many doors for me in the field of journalism. I've already had opportunity to travel abroad and have firsthand experiences in places like Kenya, preparing me for my dream career in foreign correspondence. I am also looking to complete a book for young adults.
PASSION: occupational therapy
My backers will help me realize my dream of pursuing an advanced degree and becoming an occupational therapist. I highly value education, and the funds I've raised will help pay for the cost of attending graduate school, an opportunity that may have been out of reach if it wasn't for Pave.
Pave funding will allow me finish my degree in economics and finance, and backer connections may enable opportunities such as internships that are essential to a successful career on Wall Street. I'm also planning on exploring philanthropic ideas, including a program to improve the education infrastructure in Ukraine.
