When a group of people get together and decide that maybe there are some pretty amazing companies in our community that could use a little help once in awhile – some interesting things can happen. And that’s what Seeds for Dreams is.
Companies don’t always need a million dollars, or even several hundred thousand. Sometimes all they need is a small influx of cash to help them build a retail website, or hire a marketing specialist, or design specialist or sales person – and well the list could be endless. And that is what we have decided to do.
A core group of about 8 of us brainstormed, reached out to our various networks to see if there was an appetite for this face-to-face type of crowdfunding, and the answer was a resounding yes.
This is NOT a traditional organization. There are people who take on tasks, get them done. We don’t have a bank account or a treasurer, or any formal structure. We will receive applications. We will select 3. We will invite the Seeds for Dreams Members to come and listen to the pitch. A winner will be chosen. All of the members will write cheques to the winner. And the cycle will begin again in three months.
