As entrepreneurs and investors continue their dance in the evolving crowdfunding landscape, creative innovation abounds. One model leading the charge is the Edible Credits– or Credibles – program, which allows food businesses to raise capital by pre-selling directly to consumers.
Whether it is a start-up restaurant in Brooklyn, or an expanding gelato company in Berkeley, the Credibles program is allowing consumers to act as small-scale investors, putting their money where their mouths are, supporting food businesses they believe in, and enjoying perks and bonuses in the process.
The Credibles model shows how pre-payment crowdfunding can work in the food sector and beyond. Come learn how it’s done straight from the source.
