What I'll do with $5,000
The $5,000 is a stepping stone towards acquiring additional funding and generating revenue. We aim to demonstrate the potential of Read and Sip through successful pop-up events, marketing and promotion and using the funds to attract further investments and grants. The revenue generated from early events will be reinvested into the business, fostering growth and sustainability.
