2021 Hyde Park Farmers Market
August 29, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm CDT
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Sunday, repeating until September 26, 2021
The Hyde Park Farmers Market is back for 2021 – with a new day/time and location!
In this case, production or purchase is carried out when the amount is sufficient to start. Similar to crowdfunding, but does not require special platforms or great popularity on social networks. Basically, we are talking about pre-sales.Developers are very fond of using this method when selling future apartments finance your side business at the stage of project documentation. Unlike some bad developers, always keep promises or give money back.
For grocery startups, you can create a landing page and collect a subscription for orders with delayed delivery or use the co-purchase mechanism (collecting an amount sufficient for a bulk lot to get a volume discount). Large funds cannot be raised in this way, but it may be enough to order a test batch. At the same time, you will test the demand, up to real costs.
Obtaining project financing from potential clients
If you have a B2B startup (the main clients are companies, not individuals), try to go for funding from large companies that may be interested in your product.
Nobody promises that it will be easy. And for everything to work out, the product must be unique or increase the marginality of the potential customers’ business.
It is important to have test samples and a well-calculated presentation in terms of finance and feasibility.
In the States, such stories are very common. Thus, Bill Gates started the multibillion-dollar and dearly beloved Microsoft, having received funding for MS-DOS from IBM even before the product was available.
Our companies are more careful. But if you have experience, a name in the industry, and the company needs a product and it is easier to make it with your own hands – there are chances.
Starting on Sunday, June 13, the market will take place weekly from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Hyde Park Bank parking lot at 1525 E. 53rd Street.
The market will run for 15 dates, ending on Sunday, September 26. The market will not take place on Sunday, July 4.
