EFM17 – Yishai and Kristin Horowitz – Their Crowdfunded Journey to Building a Multi-Million Dollar Sports Business

Check out this entrepreneurial endurance sports Power Couple! They are the lovable Horowitzes, Yishai and Kristin, who share their journey from building the business in a storage unit in a parking lot to recently opening a $1.8 million facility in California.

They are a husband and wife team of rock climbers, multisport athletes, including triathlon, owners of a bouldering gym, race directors bringing us some of California’s best loved Adventure races

This adventure into building climbing gyms, obstacle course races and triathlons wasn’t without it’s challenges though: they faced doubt, rejection and even took it to the edge nearly going bankrupt as a result of some naive decisions. But, with experience comes wisdom and now the Horowitzes march on towards building a number of successful multi-million dollar businesses that athletes and endurance sports enthusiasts love. We’ll talk about how they engaged their community and how they used crowdfunding to raise the capital to expand their business, not once but three times!
