BUSINESSES WE HAVE INVESTED IN

cakes&bakes by astrid

"Wow, recieving the investment from Junk.Fund came along at a time in my business when I felt defeated & even felt like "throwing in the towel"!I stared with my free standing kitchen just before lockdown last year (2020), with the plan being to put the kitchen together as I make money from my business, for my business, I even set a deadline for completion & a 'Open Kitchen Launch' date . I felt so despondent!
But then this amazing investment came my way & I am so excited at the progress happening from the finishing of the actual structure to the furnishings like much needed equipment.
A space I can be proud of!" -Astrid

BELL'S KITCHEN

"This entire journey was a blessing. Because of being apart of the programme and the pitch, thanks to the investment and junkfund funds I, I was able to elevate my business to the next level.  I was able to buy a new free standing mixer, baking trays, Baking equipment and better packaging and branding for my business.  I've benefited a great deal out of this with the knowledge I have now and Now knowing I can confidently work towards reaching my goals for my business that now seems very much possible due to the help I receIved. 
I've learned to dream big and not be afraid to ask for help when needed. you never know who is willing to lend a helping hand." -Danielle Dicks


PRINTS OF PEACE

"I could be more free to explore our marketing strategies and do something fun with a partner we got on board for a season. 
We got to work with a few talented artists who joined our Online Peace event aired on our Facebook page to spread positive messaging about the brand, the new range and increase awareness and hopefully sell in different ways.
We also got to increase our t-shirt quality tremendously and improve on the packaging of our printed items which has been great!
Next we will be able to have a better winter range. Thanks to RLabs women, Junk.fund investment" - Jodi
