Hello,

If you are reading this, you may be as surprised as I am that we are standing on this precipice. 

When I started Eureka Compass Vegan Food, I never imagined how much it would grow, and where the path would lead us.  But, here we are!!

This is a very exciting time for the Eureka Compass Community!  After four years of building this community, learning how Eureka Compass can best serve as a resource for the neighborhood, and a model of sustainability, partner development, and philanthropic purpose, it is time for us to really see what the potential for impact and meaningful progress here at Eureka Compass can be.

Yes, at the core of this project is the simple act of being a vegan grocery store.  For some, we are just selling food, and that’s a pretty awesome purpose in and of itself, but in reality, we are building something so much greater!  We are creating a resource that will model sustainability, collaborative business partnerships, community development, philanthropic responsibility, and generating equitable prosperity that builds thriving communities.  This is an investment in a community: a resilient, complex system of many communites.

Over these last 4 years I have gained incredible confidence in the ability of Eureka Compass Vegan Food to be a leader in the vegan food and in the Twin Cities business community.  I started Eureka Compass Vegan Food on a shoestring budget.  Over the last 4 years I have focused on measured, modest growth; constantly investing funds back into the operation as I learned more and more about the needs and consumer habits of the Eureka Compass Community.  The purpose of this investment offering is to put all of that knowledge and experience into creating the resource that this community has demonstrated it desires. 

The proof of concept has been achieved.  We aren’t building something that we think people will support, we are building a resource that we know this community will support.  Although I have done traditional crowdfunding campaigns, I understand the ability within private businesses to reward support with a share of the prosperity.  That is why we are offering this profit-sharing security.  We want to offer an opportunity for more families and household to benefit from this endeavor.  We want to create a community of supporters who are truly invested in the success of this mission.  A community that is working with us to not only achieve our goals, but to work together to grow the meaningful impacts of the Eureka Compass mission.  We want to create a space and resource that shows the pride and respect we have in this community; a model of compassionate commerce and thriving, sustainable community.

Please, explore the project, discover more about the journey that brought this community to this exciting moment.
