Invest in an Entrepreneur

We are inviting everyone to invest in the fund the money they would usually use to spend on junk food (fast food). This fund is used to support a new aspiring entrepreneur each month. 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.
