People all over the world are finding out that it doesn’t take a lot to be part of something bigger than themselves. There are many diverse communities that host and seek out people capable of thinking up, planning and executing great ideas.
Sometimes all they need is a little bit of funding to help get them started, and that is where other entrepreneurs and funders come in.
All it takes to know how it feels to belong to such a community of Investors funding new ideas that can be successful is $25.
Your $25 contribution allows you to be an investor, a donor, someone who helps an entrepreneur help other entrepreneurs, and you become part of the community.
This is crowdfunding, where a community of people, who probably don’t know each other, decide to fund a good idea that appeals to them. One thing that appeals to a lot of people is food, and there are many food startups.
If you have just been waiting for an opportunity to contribute to a crowdfunding campaign, your chance has arrived, with the release of a “Co-working Kitchen Incubator,” an idea similar to a co-working office incubator, but for food. My friend, Mari-Lyn Harris is passionately working on this idea to fill a need in the South and East Bay Areas of San Francisco. She is an entrepreneur working to support other entrepreneurs too!
If you have ever loved a “gourmet” jam, candy, pickle, pastry, dessert or other food that tasted “homemade,” it may have actually been made in a home! Many foods are able to be prepared at homes for sale to the public in county approved kitchens, but the ability of these passionate Foodiepreneurs to grow is limited by their home kitchens, so scaling up is a real issue that must be accommodated by a commercial kitchen. Few of these people have the ability to build their own kitchens because of the tremendous expense.
Mari-Lyn learned that she could help these people to create new businesses and jobs! This is where new (healthy?) food trends can be created!
And speaking of food trends, what about those old “roach coaches” turned rolling Foodie extravaganzas! Food Trucks are now becoming rolling restaurants. Even established restaurants have gotten into the act! Mari-Lyn’s kitchen will be supporting food truck operators too – and you would be amazed at the red tape required for them to even roll out to you!
So if you love great food and love the surprise of being able to find the good stuff, take a moment to check out this Indiegogo link, give Mari-Lyn some encouragement by signing up for a few dollars – feel like an INVESTOR – and also share it with your friends. All the tools are there. Get perks, make a contribution, or simply follow updates. If enough of us get behind it, we can make a ‘Co-working Kitchen Incubator’ happen!
Make an investment in your community and help to enable the food entrepreneurs who are your neighbors!
It’s a small price to pay to be a part of a larger movement, don’t you think?
Wouldn’t you like to be invited to the Grand Opening?
Today, the project is 1% funded, so now is the time to see what it is all about.
