Running a business in the middle of the Atlantic (#4) a

“We’re two blokes in the middle of the Atlantic. We have oars, a satellite phone, two GoPros, some freeze-dried food, a Dropbox Business subscription and Justin Bieber on repeat. Home is miles away. Barbados, our target, is miles away. We’ve met sharks and whales, 30 foot waves and had near misses with three gigantic cargo ships. This is our Dropbox journey to the cloud.”

We might be in the middle of the Atlantic and this certainly isn’t our day job, but we’re still running this adventure like a business. Our objective is to get from A to B in one piece, whilst raising as much money for our charity as possible. We also have sponsors to feed content to.

Albeit it with a few setbacks, the A to B thing is on track, as is the fund raising and we’re meeting our funding obligations too.

Today we truly realised you can run a business no matter where you are.

Our Sat Phone gives us connection, and our Dropbox Business account keeps us in touch with everyone.

Long live the cloud.

The digital cloud that is.

The cloud that made our day hell today can get lost.

The fourth of our Tempest Two series which follows the boys on their Dropbox sponsored journey across the Atlantic.
