Laurel, MD, United States, 2012/06/26 - To Your Taste!, an innovative, unique wine education product, is taking an equally unique and innovative approach to financing its production, through a Fundable.com campaign - ToYourTaste.com.
“Over the next 99 days, we’re going to be running our Fundable campaign to raise the money we need to pay for our first production run of To Your Taste!,” says Heidi McLain, founder of To Your Taste For Wine LLC. “Crowdfunding sites like Fundable have made it possible for entrepreneurs, artists, charitable groups and others to leverage social media to finance their projects when other means of financing are either not possible or available,” says McLain.
On April 5, 2012, President Obama signed into law the United States of America Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, which seeks to increase American job creation and economic growth by improving access to the public capital markets for emerging growth companies. Since the passage of the JOBS Act, crowdfunding of startup companies has become a very hot topic. Fundable.com was created specifically for startups looking to find early-stage capital before they are ready for professional outside capital.
McLain worked for seven years on the floor of a large wine store, where she realized that there is a great need for wine consumers, especially wine novices, to be able to understand wine ratings, wine reviews, and wines gone bad. So, she created To Your Taste! “I call it ‘confidence-in-a-box’ for wine consumers,” says McLain.
