We smashed through our first $25k goal - thank you!
Dear Investors & Republic Community - Wow! After hitting our $25K goal yesterday, we quickly picked up another $15k in just 24 short hours. We've seen incredible momentum even though we've only shared our campaign with small groups of friends and our closest customers.
We will be sharing our campaign with our entire AKUA community (about 40K people), and through our personal social channels the week of November 29th. We expect to be well on our way to $100K in funding by that point, and want our wider community to get really excited by it when they look at our campaign for the first time. We also *fingers crossed* should have an excellent press piece coming out as well that week. (If anyone has great media contacts who might want to cover our story - please let me know!)
On December 1st, we will share social media assets with everyone who has invested to date, encouraging you to share our campaign on your social networks. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to share AKUA's campaign to your Earth-loving, ocean-defending, plant-forward friends via email, WhatsApp, Slack channels, and more. The big marketing bang is coming with many drumbeats planned out for the next several weeks - we're just getting started.
These past few days have been incredibly exciting for Team AKUA, and we are filled with so much energy & gratitude for the community that's being created right now. Remember, with your help and our kelp - we are going to scale a first of its kind food company that creates new jobs, improves human health, and leaves our planet and our oceans better than we found them.
