George James Tricks replied to TKM's discussion What Colour/Pattern goes with....
"As far as neckties go, it's really a case of trial and error. It also depends on if the shirt itself has a pattern, if it does try and put the pattern into a "Pattern Type". For example, if the shirt has a "bold" pattern…"

"Just to be clear, you have to "raise" or do you have to "pay"?  If raise,try Kickstarter, like the others said.  If pay, take out a small loan.   What's this expedition all about?  Something exciting I…"

"A kickstarter like service is, as others have said, a good bet. You could offer rewards like post cards, expedition notes, photographs, etc depending on the level of backer."

"It could be. The idea has been implemented by other companies as well. And there is no reason he could not use the same idea of social media + benefit/rewards for investors in general on his own. Kickstarter just makes it easy"

Funding an Expedition

Hello Gentlemen,I've recently attempted to embark on a career path in exploration (yes it does still exist, though I wouldn't blame you for thinking me crazy).I've recently been able to get in contact with a society that offers internships for the career, however one of the stepping stones towards the internship is actually going on an expedition with them.
