- Why are you seeking funding and how will you spend the funding?
I will use the product to build a better website (or hire people to build one for me), buy more inventory, and have professional photos of the items taken.
So far, it is just me. But I do have a trusted team of people I go to, to run ideas by them.
My name is Candice I. I am a 25 year old black woman. A year and a half ago I lost my father. He was my best friend. He was also a major source of financial support. Since then, I have had to get creative with ways to support myself. I also am currently in law school about to enter my last year. I have always been interested in business. I studied Economics as an undergraduate student and graduated cum laude.
I have several steps I need to take to get this business the way it needs to be. I will start by launching 3-4 items. But in the long term, I want to expand my website to allow external vendors who will likely pay about 15% per purchase. (similar to amazon). I would also like to drop ship so I do not have to house inventory.
