Why is the minimum investment $1,000?

Federal securities regulation in the United States only allows small business conducting public stock offerings to take on a total of 500 shareholders. In order to ensure that we reach our fundraising goals while being limited to a total of 500 shareholders, we have set the minimum investment at $1,000. We feel that this is a low enough amount to allow many California residents of diverse economic backgrounds to purchase shares. We have partnered with Credibles to allow individuals and families, for whom $1,000 is still too high of an amount, to help create People’s Community Market by pre-paying for groceries through the purchase of Credibles in amounts between $50 and $500.
