Foodstart helps restaurants and food trucks raise capital online in small amounts, say, $50 or $250. In exchange, backers receive great perks like food discounts, guaranteed tables, and behind-the-scenes tours all redeemable with a physical card they receive in the mail.

Want to know more? Here are some of the other benefits of raising capital from the community...instead of your credit card.
