“Junk.Fund is an initiative that supports startups monthly with donations that would have otherwise been used for junk food” – Rene Parker, Junk.Fund Co-Founder
Have people repurpose clothing or functional items as a donation to Junk.Fund. The items are sold for no more than R100 and monetary proceeds go the the Social Project of the Month. The items not sold are donated to a social impact project for further repurposing.
We are inviting everyone to invest in the fund the money they would usually use to spend on junk food (fast food). This investment will be used to support in an aspiring entrepreneur. The investor (depending on the size of the investment) will have a chance to nominate an entrepreneur as a recipient. Funds are paid out monthly and the entrepreneur has a chance to attend our SME Boost sessions for further entrepreneurship support.
