A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire. He was launching a new podcast series called “The Great Business Experiment: Kickstarter.” It featured interviews with ten successful Kickstarter campaigns to talk about what worked, what was learned, and what can be done for the future.

UK Music, a body representing musicians and others in the UK music industry, which suggests that as many as 13,000 venues in England and Wales could now potentially play host to live music for the first time ever.
Serj Tankian, best known for fronting System of a Down, has fully indulged in his own artistic endeavors since System went on hiatus in 2006. His solo projects have ranged from releasing his second poetry book to an orchestral performance of his critically acclaimed debut solo rock album Elect The Dead.
Now Serj is planning to record his first 4 act symphony called ORCA with The Das Karussell Orchestra at Brucknerhaus in Linz, Austria on October 28th, 2012.
To pay for this project, Serj has personally launched a Kickstarter project for ORCA.
WHY DOES SERJ NEED HELP FUNDING ORCA?
The dude is ranked 26th in the Hit Parader’s Top 100 Metal Vocalists of All Time. He’s sold bazillians of records in his career. Why the heck can’t he just write a $25,000 check to cover the costs of this project?
Answer: This Kickstarter project serves a much larger purpose for Serj than just raising funds, more on that later.
