A Project For Your Funding Consideration

THE OUTLET- Cafe and Innovation Centre Crowd-Funding Video from Daniel Kirk on Vimeo.


In Tucson, we're pretty good at giving each other a hand. We promote local businesses, we encourage people to invest in local products, we're proud of local artists, we're into EVERYTHING local.

Well, here's your chance to live up to that and lend a hand to these 20-something, up-and-coming local entrepreneurs. Danny Kirk and Victor Alvarado are looking to open up a café and innovation centre by the name of The Outlet. But, much like everything in life, they need some cash. Here's what they have in mind for the place...

Mission
We will provide a 24/7 café + innovation centre to branch the gap between coffee shop ideation and collaborative implementation. Our café will offer high quality coffee and espresso drinks, beer + wine and a limited food menu and will have a light-hearted atmosphere. Our innovation center will offer all the resources needed to collaborate and implement ideas and projects.

Description
The Outlet will be, the first of its kind, cafe and innovation centre. We will be ending the search for the ultimate workspace by providing all the great aspects of a coffee shop, co-working space and your home, all in one. This space will be 24/7, centrally located to downtown and UofA and will aim to foster a more innovative and entrepreneurial Tucson.

So cash, that's where everyone else comes in. They've released a Kickstarter drive to plead everyone to invest in The Outlet, even if it's a couple of dollars. They've got a little something for everyone who decides to help out, from T-shirts to an exclusive work space at The Outlet. Check out their Propel Arizona site for more info on that.

This is an opportunity to support a local business since its beginning stages.
