Fundafeast.com, a new crowdfunding platform uniquely designed to help fund startups in the food + drink business launched Feb. 1 to help raise money for a wide variety of food + drink-related ventures.
“Fundafeast is designed for entrepreneurs who want to make a business out of their own food or drink ‘passion’ and need some help getting their venture started,” says Cheryl A. Clements, founder and CEO of fundafeast. “Sometimes all you need to pursue a great food business is a $500 investment, but there isn’t a bank in the world that’s going to help. I myself used GoFundMe to get fundafeast started.”
On fundafeast, entrepreneurs can post profiles of their business ideas and elicit contributions. The page provides details of the food + drink-related business, explains how the funds will be spent and keeps a running total of donations. Fundafeast collects a fee from entrepreneurs that represents only 4% of the money raised versus the 5% charged by most other crowdfunding platforms. Fundafeast doesn’t charge a penalty for clients who fall short of their goal, as some other sites do, such as a higher % rate or not allowing them to keep funding raised short of goal. Entrepreneurs are allowed to keep all funds raised.
Fundafeast hopes to develop restaurants, wine bars, cookbooks, food products, food inspired art, innovative kitchen gadgets or other food + drink-related ventures. The company wants to help anyone who wants to promote their food + drink-related passion.
