Impact Investor Pledge
Mainstem Malt, SPC is 100% family owned and operated, has scaled extremely lean, and has reached the limits of what our family can support. We recently shifted from an LLC structure to a Social Purpose Corporation (SPC) to strengthen our mission-driven foundation and enable a more complex financing package as time goes on. Our proposed near term financing strategy is outlined below. We will be actively fine tuning it as needed to keep the project moving strong and with speed, with the right group of investors.
If you're interested in investing, please fill out the following investor pledge form and we will keep you in the loop. If you have any questions before filling out the form, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DISCLAIMER: We are not positioning for a quick sale. Any investors should be comfortable riding this one out for 5 years or longer, allowing time and space for Mainstem to grow into something big, genuinely impactful, disruptive, and with enduring value to our supply chain stakeholders, from headwaters to consumers.
Deal in Development
We will start raising money in the very near future with our Pre-A financing round. The plan is to use Pre-A funds to purchase and install our first malting drum in Walla Walla, while adding key team members, working capital, and additional professional support. We will further our development of strategic partnerships in both Northwest and Alaska markets, advance customer relationships, and improve our operating systems. Investments will be made in the long-term design and construction plan for our Walla Walla facility and a deposit will be placed to start construction of malting drum #2. A phased action plan will support development of the Mainstem Alaska Hub, with capital-lite Alaska legwork to be bolstered substantially by subsequent Series A funding.
Mainstem's Pre-A will be an opportunity for investors to get behind us early, in exchange for the ability to influence Mainstem at a pivotal time and for a higher potential return on their investment. These investors should believe that their financing is the missing link between Mainstem's current market positioning and being ready to build a multi-million dollar malting facility in Walla Walla. They should see strong Alaskan market potential very close on the horizon. They should take confidence that financing will be focused on immediate growth opportunities, not prior baggage.
Series A Round
Deal to Follow
The current plan is to use Series A funds to bolster our build-out of the Mainstem Northwest Hub in Walla Walla, and associated internal capacity required to make this facility a regional success. Additional resources will be allocated toward more advanced development of the Mainstem Alaska Hub. The Mainstem Southwest Hub concept will be put through its first formal feasibility and strategic assessment phase.
Mainstem's Series A will be an opportunity to invest in the company once more benchmarks have been reached and market potential becomes more readily reckognizable. Both new-to-Mainstem and Pre-A investors will be invited to support the company through an exciting new chapter, where substantial capital is put to work towards substantial growth into target markets.
