Vitruvian Brewing Co. in Yellow Springs is turning to the Internet to raise capital for its new brewery, the Dayton Daily News reports. Founder Shane Creepingbear tells the newspaper that banks aren't interested in providing small loans so the brewery is seeking financial help through the website IndieGoGo.
“Beyond that, it's not exactly appealing to be in debt right out of the gates,” he told the newspaper. “There are a lot of success stories right now for people using crowdfunding options for their start-ups, everything from films and video games to education and travel. It's a great idea: draw on small contributions from a wide net community."
Vitruvian is trying to raise $30,000. To read the full story, click here.
