Emily Reichert announced a $30,000 “Greentown Grows” crowd funding campaign at the regular EnergyBar series held in current headquarters that evening, all within the backdrop of a new logo and website. A live text pledge option garnered more than $2,000 in pledges in a just a few minutes before the ‘Strategics and Startups’ panel discussion began.
Rewards for pledges ranging from $25 to $5,000 include logo t-shirts, pint glasses, recognition and official status as a ‘Friend of Greentown.’ The highest level will fund an entrepreneur’s seat for a year and an opportunity to track progress in a personal way.
“We are grateful for all the friends, sponsors and partners that have gotten us this far. The Greentown Grows Campaign is one way you can help continue to build this community and give more entrepreneurs a chance to pursue their dreams,” said Emily Reichert.
