This crowdfunding site is unusual in that it’s geared specifically toward restaurants. And since restaurants often have trouble getting funding, it’s great to see InKind try to remedy that. The way it works is that you get funding by providing gift cards to InKind, and they’ll sell them for you as “House Accounts,” which brings in repeat business. They were originally known as “EquityEats,” but they have since changed their name to InKind.
InKind doesn't take any equity in your
restaurant business, they take food and beverage credit, which is sold to people in your local community by way of a House Account. A House Account is an amount of food and beverage credit that is redeemable at your business - it allows guests to prepay for multiple visits. When someone buys one, they are prompted to enter information about their dining preferences, so the next time they come in, you are notified with that information to give them a more personalized service.
PLASTIC WASTE - Poses more of a risk to marine life than sushi bars. Fish and marine mammals are developing cancerous growths. It's too early to be able to say plastic waste is to blame, but something is causing this phenomenon and plastic waste is reaching high saturation levels. Fish stocks are at an all time low. If not for diesel fuel subsidies, fish would be off the menu, because ships could not afford to travel as far as they do now to find a reasonable harvest. The Global Ocean Commission and other agencies are looking for ways to combat these problems. We can only help with ocean pollution if our research is supported.

Where proposals are invited for commercial zero carbon craft, concerning polluted oceans and plastic waste, we are more than interested in collaborating at cost with academics and industry to produce an ocean going vacuum cleaner that we have codenamed Project SeaVax.
