Phin and Phebes is raising money on Circle Up
Raising money for your company is hard. Raising money for a food company is even harder. The capital needs are quite different. I do have a soft spot in my heart for people who build food businesses.
I met with Phin and Phebes awhile back with the thought that I am meeting them to give some advice and there is no way I am getting involved. I loved their story. You know when you meet really good entrepreneurs because you can’t stop thinking about them. I could not get them out of my head for days on end. They are so smart and scrappy about their business. I reached back out and made an investment. Of course I love ice cream and I love their ice cream but it was also about their business acumen.
They are raising another round back on Circle Up. I love that they are doing that too. They had success on CU the first time. It is a smart way to raise money from a crowd that is interested in food investments and understands them.
If you have any interest. Check out their info here I am coming back into this round. I am also super excited about one of their new flavors; green tea.
