Crowdfunding

Ice, ice baby

It’s unlikely that any boardroom has brought up the issue of climate change and decided on the solution of melting more ice. But in an ironic turn of events, two Kiwi entrepreneurs have launched an ingenious product: Trump ice-head Trays. Encouraging consumers to “Cool down while the planet warms up,” the ice trays are moulded in the shape of a golf-ball size, 360° replica of US President Donald Trump’s head, with all profits going to the Environmental Justice Foundation.

Money matters

Christchurch-based social enterprise Ethique has launched their second equity crowdfunding campaign on PledgeMe – and already raised their maximum goal of $500,000 in less than a day. Translation: investors seem to really believe in natural beauty products.
