Finding the Dollars: Capital for a Growing Food Business

WIDACP- Finding the dollars - how to find capitol to support business growthDashelito’s would like to thank the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, Tera Johnson of UW Extension Food Finance Institute, and Paul Dietmann of Badgerland Financial for the very informative seminar “Finding the Dollars”. This seminar was the last in a series under the “2014-2015 Local Food Business Seminar” series.

The subject of “Finding the Dollars” was an introduction to business capital sources for Wisconsin farm and food businesses. The seminar discussed the appropriate uses of crowd funding, kick starter, pre-payments, vendor financing, customer financing, private investor loans, friends and family loans, micro loan funds, social venture investor loans, equity investors, conventional bank loans, and the role of guarantees.

We’re thinking and planning about how to support the capitol requirements of our growing food and hot pepper sauce production business without sacrificing our Midwestern values and all natural products. Dashelito’s will keep you posted on our plans and opportunities – thank you for your continued support!
