Foodstart, a platform designed just for the food-and-beverage industry, enables restaurants, breweries, and others to raise capital that is returned with perks and rewards.
Our market research shows that when it comes to restaurants, backers prefer in-kind rewards like a guaranteed table or a free dessert to an actual cash return - which translates into low-cost capital (our fee's just 4%), full seats, and sold product.
Also, unique to Foodstart - backers receive a physical "backer card" they present to the business to redeem their perks. It's embossed with their name and looks and feels like a credit card.
