Find Investors & Raise Capital for Food & Bev Brands
Find investors and raise capital for food & bev brands from Farm2Me investor partners. If you’re new to Investor fundraising and raising capital, you should know about 4 partner platforms: Kiva (formerly KivaZip), Circle, SeedInvest, and Start Engine (Start Engine acquired SeedInvest in 2023). You can learn how to search for supporters for “crowdfunding” , utilize “agencies” to design videos/graphics, and have the support of institutional “investors” passionate about supporting food & bev, play a part. Ex: Grady's Cold Brew (a Farm2Me class of 2010 brand) raised $1M+ on Start Engine.
That's why Farm2Me partnered with Start Engine - they are the largest food & bev investor network for emerging food & beverage brands. And we negotiated terms that save you money on discounts and services with StartEngine ( including fees ) so it's even easier for you to raise capital.
Start Engine also agreed to give Farm2Me brand network access to Start Engine's advisors for free - to answer questions, let you understand what parameters to set when looking for capital (e.g. how to find investors passionate about food & bev, how much to raise, etc), what financial reporting you need to collect, what kind of content you need to create to promote your fundraising campaign, and what percentage of your company you should give away in equity).
It’s worth noting that there are lots of crowdfunding platforms out there, and not all of them have worked with food & bev brands. You can’t know which is truly the best or which isn't the right fit….. but Farm2Me does research which brand's have raised rounds on which platform, to see which platform's investors are aligned with your values. You can go through Start Engine's list and see that Grady's Cold Brew has successfully raised $1M, Ola has raised over $2M, and Shacksbury raised over $1M on their website: startengine.com.
