    the monetary restraints I hadn t put that much effort into my scholarly activities and ended my school career with a Grade 10 I entered the working world with a string of jobs that were as diverse as the population of London and as fulfilling as a MacDonalds burger Thankfully my passion for helping others had in no way diminished so I found myself involved in politics My efforts to help others as a professional volunteer had caved in so I thought I would give politics a try Surely the system that creates the rules would be able to help the down trodden Right I didn t join the largest political party Nor the second largest But we did for a brief period hold the Deputy Mayors position in the City of Cape Town And I learnt a lot about life and what makes people tick And also how bad the political system is at giving people a hand up instead of a hand out My time in active politics will forever be a highlight The party did well at polls for the two elections I was involved I learnt the importance of a unified team under a good leader And also that I need to come from a position of strength if I ever wish to make a real difference People often ask me why I want to make a difference Why do I want to help people I really can t answer that question I believe that I am just wired that way it s one of my main motivators After sailing across the Atlantic Ocean in a 40ft catamaran I was at a loose end An opportunity arose for me to join a media company s fledgling event team The event production business was an area where I felt comfortable from the outset I spent the next few years creating concepts for new events and growing those we had Taking an event from concept to execution is a phenomenal feeling and this kept my total attention until sometime after 30th birthday By this time I was recently appointed director of the events division with nothing but immense potential before me But now that I was 30 I started to reflect on my life What I had done Where was going And what it all meant That yearning to work with people and help them to reach their full potential was re awoken within me I had at this stage been involved in politics and business for close on 12 years I had sat around tables with the mightiest of politicians and business people I had a fairly decent understanding of how to get ahead as a business person And the time had come for me to undertake my next adventure When I spoke to my then MD about me resigning I almost cried which is very unusual for me But I had made my mind up Joining Caban Investments as Chief Operating Officer is more than just

    a similar business model to its American based counterpart Kickstarter Last year alone Kickstarter helped 18 000 businesses to raise 320 million The concept is simple The website gives entrepreneurs artists and other project owners a platform to present their ideas and convince possible contributors of the worthiness of their cause Donors Donors can give amounts as small as R50 And project creators offer rewards for those who buy in which grow in size as the contribution amount increases In some cases contributors make donations in exchange for the first versions of a new prototype or product A plan to produce glow in the dark plants advertised on Kickstarter proved wildly successful in the US with 8 433 donors donating almost 500 000 in just 44 days Time magazine reported Contributors it turns out were rather excited about the glow in the dark seeds being offered as tokens of thanks Locally the Ybike Evolve a combination tricycle and balance bike aimed at helping children to develop their gross motor skills raised R47 000 instead of its hoped for R30 000 on a new local crowdfunding site thundafund com Almost all of its contributors bought the final product at a discount as their reward A virtuous circle According to Ben Botes one of the founders of StartMe it s a virtuous circle Contributors create a market for the product or an audience for the artist But for the most part contributors are usually friends or family of the person doing the project Botes said Clerk has found the same thing although some of her largest contributions have come through second tier connections And in many cases the rewards offered to contributors are a token rather than a real incentive to donate A R250 donation to Clerk s cause will earn you a mention in her travel blog R500 will get you a beaded ornament with your name left somewhere special in New York In order for your project to be featured on StartMe it must go through a simple vetting process Real ideas We make sure the ideas being posted are real that they are ethical and that they comply with legal requirements in the country Botes said The project owner sets a time limit by which their funding goals must be met usually 60 90 or 120 days Contributors are only required to pay if the funding goal is reached If the goal is not met the project owner gets nothing The idea is that if that amount is not raised then it is questionable whether the project will succeed Botes said StartMe takes a 5 fee from those projects that reach their target It s really a pay on success based model he said Since the company started in 2011 it has featured 125 projects Of them 15 have been successful StartMe hopes to double its success rate next year and eventually see about a 30 rate Other models There are other crowdfunding models such as the American Indiegogo
