For this week’s Friday Question of the Day – I’m curious what you think about the trend in restaurants fundraising through sites like Kickstarter? Pleasant Pops was able to raise over $20,000. Mothership from the owner of the El Floridano Food Truck has raised over $11,000 with a goal of $30,000. A site similar to kickstarter called fundrise is trying to raise money for Maketto hoping to come to H Street, NE. Do you think this trend is here to stay? Do you think it’s a good way for restaurants/markets etc. to raise money? Have any of you invested in one of these ventures?
