Estimated Time: 12 - 15 Hours Over 1 - 2 Months

Overview: Contribute your expertise and experience to make an established digital radio show independently $sustainable, by mentoring the show's producer/creator/co-host to build and present a business case/pitch for funding/sponsorship. Deliverables: * Mentor building the right information, in the right format(s) to reach, engage and convince the right funding partners to make the show financially sustainable. twice | Talks With Innovators, Creatives & Enterprisers is a love not money project that has featured more than 150 guests who are making positive dents on society through their work. People like Wellington Mayor Justin Lester, and charities like CoLiberate mental health team and One Percent Collective, and many others. Listen on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. This support will directly help me take the show to its next, independently sustainable level; so I can start to cover costs for scoping, recording, producing and publishing episodes.
