Greetings boys and girls,

I just got my first sponsorship deal and thought if any of you had any questions, I'd be happy to help answer them and help out.

Start a climbing-related business. You can sponsor yourself as much as you like and better still write it all off against tax as product development/market research/testing etc. Itīs considerably better paid than being a pro climber.

Right now I am programming a stupid PID controller for the 3rd time because it won't seem to hold onto my settings. These are the things I do to sponsor his ass.

I'm not so sure about that....


So, Kartessa - Part of being sponsored is talking up the company that's behind you. Spill the beans already....

So the story is that the company I work for posted that they were offering "sponsorships" to staff to compete in climbing, cycling, kayaking and running... I was the only person to apply for the climbing one and the rest is ^^

Clearly you first didn't direct them to the "I'm overweight" thread you posted in when you requested that they sponsor your comp fees:-) Sly

Good call there. I like Jim Titts point up thread as well.

Unemployment checks do not equal sponsorship.

How about a company agreeing to pay comp fees, and a small daily allowance when at comps ?

Well fuck, that's more than Nathan gets.

Greetings boys and girls,

I just got my first sponsorship deal and thought if any of you had any questions, I'd be happy to help answer them and help out.
Can you get me a pro rope deal?
