4% of funds was generated from event ticket sales and camp fee which was also used at the event. This was a test model of how Steemcamp can raise funds her self with or without sponsors.
During this event, We tried so many ways we could have a perfect show and at the same time achieve it aim of decentralizing our offline community by bringing steem platform to creative individuals to eradicate poverty and unemployment in 3rd world countries
It was a challenge picking the right people to work with steemcamp and its also normal for contestants who was not picked to get vexed or rebel on steem platform.
$14,000 usd was approximately spent on steemcamp project from the 6 city tour to the grand finale. Thank God for seeing us through even when people who promised failed to support.
