crowdSPRING Interview (Beyond The Pedway)

A few days ago, Tim Jahn of Beyond the Pedway spent the morning talking with me and co-founder Mike Samson about crowdSPRING, crowdsourcing, chia Lincoln (see the video!), and our community. Tim did a very nice job editing – here’s a concise version of our conversation:

Beyond The Pedway is a weekly video podcast dedicated to discovering creative companies in Chicago. Beyond The Pedway seeks to learn about the people behind Chicago’s creative companies, what they do, and why they do it in Chicago. A song from a local Chicago band is featured during the intro and credits of each episode. There are other interviews with Chicago startups on Beyond The Pedway (including 37signals, Threadless, Groupon, and many others) and I’d encourage you to take some time to watch them.


  1. Ross,

    I’ve been a huge fan of crowdspring since it started and have become a regular reader of your blog.

    Keep up the great work.

    Best Regards,

    Robert M. Cavezza

  2. Dear Ross,

    I have only recently come across crowdSPRING, and as an entrepreneur wannabe, I am impressed by both the vision of your company and the delivery of your service. In addition, I find your videos to be sensible, informative, accessible, and a very useful reference.

    I wish you all the best with crowdSPRING.


  3. Robert – so glad that you’re finding the videos helpful. Thanks for leaving a comment.

    Owen – Much thanks for those kind words and well-wishes. Keep working at it – every entrepreneur starts somewhere…
