Taking a big leap

Salvador began his own entrepreneurial journey in 2012 while working on a logistic regression as part of a mini-eco thesis for his undergraduate degree. This project studied the different categories on the popular crowdfunding site, Kickstarter. His findings discovered that there was a remarkable difference in the launch strategies behind a creative project–such as film, theater, or dance–versus a physical product–such as games or technology. Salvador began sharing his findings from this project on his blog, CrowdCrux, and soon they caught on and his audience began to grow.

In 2014, Salvador was able to go full-time with his blog while also growing several other assets such as his sites KickstarterForum.org and CrowdfundingForum.com.

Passionate about crowdfunding, online businesses, and entrepreneurship, Salvador moved to New York City to continue his dream of expanding his business. In a YouTube video he shares the story of his first apartment in NYC and what life was like during that first year. While walking the same street he used to live on, Salvador reflects back on how he first came to NYC with only enough money to pay one month’s rent for a sublet in Harlem.

“I remember how my girlfriend at the time bought me a cake for my birthday. I was careful and make that cake last the entire week, because I couldn’t afford much food,” says Salvador. “I was living on the edge, but I was working hard and passionate about my dream.”

Now, a few years later, he is living in a great section of Williamsburg, Brooklyn and has recently moderated a crowdfunding panel in Harlem on the very same block he used to live.

“It just goes to show that with time, persistence, and hard work you can change your circumstances.”

Helping others achieve their crowdfunding goals

Salvador has always been eager to achieve success because he wants to help improve the lives of others around the world. By pursuing his passion in online businesses and crowdfunding, Salvador has been able to build various tools for other entrepreneurs to utilize in to grow their own ventures.

“I want to help them achieve their goals as well,” says Salvador. “If I help enough people achieve their goals, then I will achieve mine.”

When asked about his biggest struggle he has faced so far, he did not mention his hard times in NYC or other obstacles with achieving success. Instead his biggest struggle was there were so many hopeful entrepreneurs failing with their crowdfunding campaigns and he did not know how to best help them at the time. This need to help others achieve their own dreams is what leads Salvador to further pursue his study of crowdfunding campaigns and online businesses.

Through his study he realized that often times failure was due to lack of good preparation and a thorough pre-launch before the crowdfunding campaign. Many crowdfunding creators are not marketing experts and so they often do not have the necessary tools or skill sets create successful campaigns. Salvador however has worked hard to provide those tools and guidance. Through high quality educational material and helping creators one-on-one, Salvador has been able to help improve success rates for entrepreneurs in their crowdfunding campaigns.

Sharing some insights he has learned throughout the years, Salvador gives his own definition of success. “First you have to educate yourself. You have to learn from success stories and also failures. Become the sponge and seek out as much information as you can.”

Living by this advice, Salvador is always learning new skill sets such as video editing, podcasting, social media marketing, and more. This willingness to always continue learning and evolving oneself is crucial to success as adaptability is an important skill in the ever-evolving world of business.

Additionally, Salvador advises that to make the most out of your venture you must have a product or service that has demand and meets a need in the market. Once this is achieved then the real work toward marketing and selling that product or service can begin.

Lastly, Salvador says, “You have to be willing to be a creator or business owner and not a consumer.”

It’s hard to pull out of the consumer mindset. We’re all consumers and it’s much easier to be a consumer than a producer. To be a producer you have to think like one. “Be willing to invest in your business, cultivate talent, and always be focused on the experience you can deliver to your customers,” Salvador says.

In such a competitive world, leveraging ones skills and optimizing ones ability to finance their ventures is invaluable. Crowdfunding offers creators and entrepreneurs a great way to raise money for their projects, and by learning how to build successful campaigns one can guarantee their efforts will not go to waste.

Salvador’s extensive knowledge and research into crowdfunding and business building has been able to help hundreds of thousands of people across the globe and he hopes to continue achieving success by helping others achieve their own success.

HETP classes Hispanic entrepreneurs offered by SHCCNJ

The NJ Hispanic Chamber of Commerce opens doors for Hispanic entrepreneurs

The Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey offers opportunities to startups as well as established Hispanic entrepreneurs looking to expand through their Hispanic Entrepreneur Training program (HETP).

“The mission of the HETP is to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate business education and mentorship services to Hispanic small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs,” said Luis O De la Hoz, Vice Chairman of the chamber. “These services are provided for free to all aspiring or established entrepreneurs.”

This year, according to De La Hoz, the program has been divided into two tracks to allow better gathering of the information provided. “We used to have startups and established businesses together but we realized that questions and concerns were different for both type of Hispanic entrepreneurs,” he said.

Based on the last year’s program experience, the chamber gathered a great amount of information of the Hispanic entrepreneurs needs, including a structured business plan, resources and “a taste of reality.”

“While established businesses demand information about resources and access to capital, mentorship or resources for growth in new markets, new ideas need to be analyzed in order to determine their sustainability,” De la Hoz shared. “It is a taste of reality for startups that goes beyond the enthusiasm of a business idea and proves it possible.”

This year, instructors are also different for both tracks and the curriculum will have a different knowledge level.

The Statewide Hispanic Chamber is committed to offer New Jersey’s over 80,000 Hispanic entrepreneurs and small businesses an appropriate support system to help them flourish.

“It is the concept of ‘familia’ that will allow our community to grow together, and sustain real growth,” De la Hoz said.  “Our goal is to provide access, opportunity and meaningful mentorship/coaching for all our community so that we guarantee them a fair starting point to become successful,” he concluded.
