Cornucopia’s ‘Green Goddess Crowdfunded €50,000 in 48 Hours

This comes from the article Crowdfunding foodies raising lots of dough by Deirdre Reynolds

Many restaurants are now turning their backs on the banks when it comes to seeking finance and using their customers, family and small-time investors to fulfil their food dreams. Retailing at €3.95, Cornucopia’s ‘Green Goddess’ – infused with apple and the ubiquitous avocado – is just one of the trendy cold-pressed juices new to shelves here after the company successfully crowdfunded €50,000 in only 48 hours.

Meanwhile, back at the city centre eatery, eagle-eyed regulars may have noticed the shiny new service counter, also installed no thanks to the banks recently.
“We were in something called Food Works [a business programme run by Bord Bia, Enterprise Ireland and Teagasc] with our juice product and they recommended crowdfunding,” explained Deirdre, who set up the health-food-store-turned-wholefood restaurant with her late husband, Neil, in 1986.

“I had some experience of working with the crowd because when I was turned down for planning permission to turn the building beside us from retail to restaurant. I went to my customers and I got a petition going. Two thousand people signed it [saying], ‘Please give her planning permission’, over a two-week period,” says Deirdre.

Why this is important: When you read the article you can see that she had her tribe lined up. Not only had she successfully rallied them before, they are able to create change. Now, the second time around they are bigger and stronger. That’s why we offer clients a tribe building program before they crowd fund, so that they can get a tribe that will work and put in money.

How to Go From Crowdfunding to the NASDAQ

Shift Pixy

This comes from an article: First Reg A+, then NASDAQ Listing for ShiftPixy
By JD Alois

ShiftPixy Workers FastTemp staff provider ShiftPixy is hoping to soon trade on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker symbol PIXY but first, they are raising capital under Regulation A+. ShiftPixy has enlisted WR Hambrecht as sole underwriter on a “best effort” basis to raise up to $50 million with a minimum raise of $15 million.

ShiftPixy is a service provider that contracts with business clients in need of part-time staff primarily in the hospitality and restaurant industry. The company is currently operating in Southern California but intends on opening additional physical locations in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Orlando, Dallas, Las Vegas, Atlanta and Philly (in that order). ShiftPixy currently has over 150 clients and about 3,350 worksite employees.

Let me share why this is significant:

This is a great plan. Many people are just crowdfunding one time with no real vision of how to move forward after that. If all goes well with each step, going to the NASDAQ is the right idea. And you will be able to watch the company progress all along the way. I think there will be a stock exchange for crowdfunded projects in the future but until then, this is a solid plan. I hope it helps you think in longer terms instead of just getting funding that will last you, 6 months or so.
