Since our campaign update a week ago, we have raised an additional $900. This is slightly less than our first week but is actually pretty good for a period that is usually a lull in campaigns! The number of visitors to the campaign page have doubled from 550 to over 1100 so we really appreciate your continued sharing!
Our targeted outreach has finally put us in front of some local media influencers and we believe this week will begin to show the fruits of these efforts. Wish us luck at today’s Pitch for Pitchers event, at Twin Leaf Brewery, where we’ll be giving a 60-second pitch of our business followed by a 2 min Q&A session to hopefully win a pitcher of beer and $50! The beer doesn’t matter much and would probably be given away anyway but the exposure will be great!
We’ll also be attending the inaugural conference: Bringing it Home: Building a Local Economy for Everyone, next Wednesday, March 18th. This conference aims at improving our regional economy and ultimately local wages and access to entrepreneurial services.
Again, we want to thank you for your continued support and urge you to please continue sharing the campaign. We are very near to a funding level that will allow us to build a still (although somewhat smaller than the one we would build if we meet our goal). Crossing the $2,500 funding threshold will ensure that we are able to fulfill the perks you all have signed up for and facilitate boot-strap growth should our fundraising stop there!
If you haven’t yet, follow us on twitter and facebook for more updates and goings on! Thanks again friends! We can smell the herbs growing now!
