Hello my fellow permies enthusiast's, My partner and I are getting ready to start a crowd funding campaign. We would love to get your opinion on our business idea. We are going to be raising money to start a Commercial Real Estate company. Our company will make money by buying 100+ unit apartment buildings. We want to find Apartments that need some work done to them. The Apartments that we find will need to have enough land to create a edible landscape. For the people who are currently living in the Apartment complex. We want to use a Permaculture designing company to create the edible landscape. We plan on donating all the fruits and veggies that the Apartments grow to the tenants at the Apartments. But we will be adding a $10.00 charge for the Permaculture company to maintain the landscaping on a weekly basis. We feel they will be the best company to use for the edible landscape. Most gardening company's won't know what to do to maintain it. By using a Permaculture landscape we hope to save money on our water bill as well. Which will help the bottom line and will help us expand faster. This is going to be a long term investment we will not be selling this company and will also not be on the open stock market. We don't want Rich corporations to buy enough shares to take charge. We want this company to keep expanding the world through the years. So we can one day feed thousands of people on a daily basis. And as a plus people who normally wouldn't live where there food grow get to. As a company we plan on always donating 10% of are profits to different Permaculture projects or to project that help feed people. We would even like to one day create our own massive Permaculture project that will feed many people. One of our main goal for this company will to one day be able to buy land and build our own apartment building that will be Permaculture focused. They will harvest water and electricity to supply the landscape and the buildings. They will be specifically designed with Permaculture practices.
We are looking at 3 different Apartment buildings that are a 100+ units. But since they might not still be around by the time I get funded for this business plan. So instead we decided to ask for 70% of the asking price for 100+ units Apartments. Which after doing some research we found that 5.5 million is the average price we came up with. So we will be asking for 3,850,000. Plus 700,000 for the Permaculture landscape and repairs that need to be done. So in total we will be asking for 4,550,000 but since we have a bunch of fee's and taxes we have to pay I think we will ask for 5,000,000 instead. Please give us your opinions about our business idea. Or your opinion on how we should get people involved to make this happen. Plus most of these crowdfunding campaigns give out incentives to get people more involved. What type of incentives can we use to help with our crowdfunding campaign? Thanks for taking the time to read this your opinions will be greatly appreciated.
