  • Not The Typical Lemonade Stand 1 comment

    It may have come to your attention that there have been some stunning successes on getting funding on Kickstarter recently.

    The production of this potato salad raised $48,466 from 5,905 backers.

    So, my son, the portfolio manager of Lion Investments, thought he would give it a try and is going to launch an effort to find backers for his first operating business, a boutique lemonade stand. He watched William Ackman: Everything You Need to Know About Finance and Investing in Under an Hour and is ready to start his first round of financing to cover his start-up costs. If you have any feedback on this project, please leave it here. The link takes you to his first draft effort at a first business plan. If you ever operated a lemonade stand or ran any other type of small business, you might have advice on how to get started.

    Thank you.

    Disclosure: The author has no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
