FUNDING GOALS AND TIMELINE
The funding threshold of $40,000 is our first step towards achieving our goal of breaking ground on the first episode of RACE FOR THE TOP. Normally, a production like this will cost $60,000 to hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce. However, the partners and contractors we’ve brought together for this project are putting their time and resources into the first episodes of RACE FOR THE TOP at no charge or a reduced rate because they believe in the vision and the philosophy of crowdfunding to help entrepreneurs change the world for the better.
Upon reaching our funding goal, we will go right into our pre-production phase that will entail picking locations and the companies that will be highlighted in each episode. Shortly after, we move into the production phase that includes coordinating the companies and characters for each episode and filming the episode(s). Next, we move into post-production phase that includes editing the footage and adding interactive overlays that will bring the episodes to life! Lastly, we add to the e360tv show line-up and via social and digital advertising networks, we promote and market the show to millions.
Our potential audience is 12-15 million!
