Would you be willing to endorse my Kickstarter campaign?
Yesterday I launched a Kickstarter campaign for my startup food company, Surprisingly Vegan. My first product will be an innovative, vegan and gluten-free, just-add-water waffle mix. It looks like you have endorsed many great food-related projects on Kickstarter. Would you be willing to endorse my campaign? If so, I know that your endorsement would make a huge difference to the success of my campaign! Thanks.
As a gluten-free person myself, I'm excited to try your waffles!
As far as which types of Kickstarter campaigns I add to my curated page, they are usually deeply mission-oriented social enterprise models that address one or more of the food system issues that inspired the mission of my nonprofit, Finance for Food, and the book Raising Dough. These include minority ownership, food access, food sovereignty, immigrant issues / cultural heritage, farm worker rights, cooperative ownership or cross-stakeholder collaboration, ecological restoration, community economic development, support for local food systems... to name a few. I might make an exception if there's a really innovative business type and/or financing model at work (such as an interesting reward system).
Just because these are the hurdles I set before promoting a specific Kickstarter project in this way does not mean that I don't think what you're doing is important - I definitely hope that your campaign is successful, and I look forward to seeing your products on store shelves.
