NEW YORK, June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Brooklyn based Nextdoorganics is taking an unconventional approach to raising the funds to support their growth plans. As part of an equity crowdfunding campaign, the company is offering a free weekly subscription of locally sourced produce for life - valued at $25/week - to the first ten investors to put in $5000 or more in the campaign. Additionally, customers who invest as little as $100 before July 15 will receive a lifetime discount on all orders.
"Investing in early stage companies is very risky, and it can be a long time – if ever – before investors are able to realize a return. We've been working hard to achieve our vision for a system where community based food hubs can be more competitive against the big players, and we want our members to be able to participate in our long term success, but we can't pretend that this is risk free. Non-professional investors who are willing to invest should be able to receive a benefit that is not tied to the success of our growth plans. If we fail to grow beyond New York, or if it takes many years before an exit scenario presents itself, these early member-investors will still be able to get something of value. This is aligned with our commitment to build a model that distributes positive impacts across all stakeholders in the community."
– Kris Schumacher, CFO
"Food is essential to our existence, survival, and health, and the emotional connection to our day-to-day life. As a result, I've been working with Nextdoorganics to support an ecosystem for better food since 2014. Josh and Kris are passionate, determined and inspirational founders who have not only created this mission focused super CSA, but also served hundreds of families in a food desert. Thanks to them, Nextdoorganics has been providing sustainable produce sourced locally that are healthy and savory food sources for my family for the past couple of years."
- Shen Tong, Founder, Food Future
