If you're an entrepreneur or corporate innovator, why?

I want to invent something cool.

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

Assumptions. People believe they know what you do how you do it and how much time it takes. Never Correct

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs/innovators make?

Lack of Focus

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

1.) Most people say they can do it, very very few can
2.) and the rarest individual is the one that did it ALL by him or herself

Full bio

KEVIN KOLENDA is a lifelong entrepreneur who started a few companies before creating a WILDLY Successful as well as WILDLY UNIQUE over 30+ years ago and thru approximately $25 million in Sales. it was the first company in his city to go on the internet as well as the first on the web for this niche industry, which is defined as “prize provider for promotions and contests.” 

He has personally serviced over 100,000 satisfied clients around the world and has “personally” paid out over $10 million dollars PLUS in prize Promotion WINNERS sans a partner or corporate backer. THIS is UNPRECEDENTED.

 KEVIN KOLENDA provides products and services that NO ONE ELSE in the WORLD PROVIDES exclusively for selective industries & corporations such as Harley-Davidson, the Auto Dealer Hole in One Golf and Non Golf Promotion industry, PBR Pro Bull Riders, Archery, Disc Golf, Pizza Hut,Chambers of Commerce, and Military Golf Benefits and Courses. Helicopter Golf Ball Drops again that no one else in the world provides, therefore it is correct to state that he has NO PEERS in the prize or promotion industry.

 He has been on Iceland State TV, Boston Television, Los Angeles & Philly Sports Radio, in numerous magazines as well as on The Intrepid and on stage in Vegas while performing these events.


The Creator of Putting Contests the # 2 Contest in the world as well as copyrighted creator of the Million Dollar Hole in One event that you will come across on practically every golf course in the world

He still prides himself in taking care of LOCAL hometown events first & foremost, as well as being the largest prize provider in the Caribbean, China, Hong Kong, Russia, Norway Central & South America as well as many other markets around the world. His main focus is still the USA, with special attention given to PGA Pro Shops involvement, New York tri-state area, New England, Las Vegas, and Myrtle Beach, his "home away from homes".

He is repeatedly requested to divulge internal statistics, rate charts, company filings, research, legal input, State and International statutes interpretations and more. For example, he has over 30,000 + amateur Golf putting statistics (from the years of  EVERY Golf Show research he createdPutting Contests) NOW, The # 2 Contest promotion in the World ! behind Hole in One awards . . . . . 

 He has continued in establishing many other contests in the US and worldwide, while the industry's innovation has been flat or nonexistent.

 With this Long Standing VERY PRIVATE company and PRIVATE personal history. Why would he divulge this proprietary Industry establishing products and background for others to jump in on. Because of this he is always easily considered lite years ahead (or at least 10 years*) of the Prize Promotion Industry curve.

* KEVIN KOLENDA denied Lance Armstrong's and his TailWind Sports people's accomplishment / feat 10 years BEFORE everyone else did and came to the obvious conclusion !

 He often receives requests for statistical analysis and advisory positions from world renowned entities like Lloyds of London Syndicates, Notre Dame Alumni, GE, GMC and more. Although rarely accepting the RFP's and due to this, at times gets misrepresented, misinterpreted, confused by, or even slagged by misinformation, poor guesswork from officials, journalists, other sources, all mainly due to his steadfast refusal to divulge this PROPRIETARYand EXCLUSIVE maturation of statistical info unbeknownst to the inexperienced marketplace as well as the top experienced competition.

Bottom Line is that NO comparable company or Individual, Expert or Quasi Expert IN THE WORLD can come close to the knowledge / experience of and on providing what he can do PLUS what he has done and seen. No matter what anyone else tell ya :)  Read More About
