Gemma Vendetta is GROWING, but I need your help! Read more, and WHY below.
For those that don't know me, I'm Gemma (and that's my little boy!)
The founder/creator/brains/brawn/bonkers person behind the Certified Vegan + Cruelty Free Mineral Makeup Brand, Gemma Vendetta Cosmetics.
I am so proud to announce that I am a DOUBLE finalist in this years' Telstra Best in Business Awards, my products have been made DOUBLE finalists in this years' Clean + Conscious Awards. Which absolutely blows my mind.
I am a sole trader. I am so micro that I am the only person that works in my business (that is soon to change!), and I am seeking your financial assistance for my next growth phase.
I started my brand in 2016, I invested my house deposit into my idea, which was spawned from a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, and as a result of becoming a fulltime, single Mum.
I have been raising my Son, single-handedly since he was 1.5yrs of age, he turns ELEVEN soon. Where did that time even go?
Since 2013, I have gained my Cert 4 in Hairdressing, Cert 2 in Retail Makeup, a Cert 4 in Small Business Management, and I've successfully completed the NEIS (New Enterprise Incentive Scheme).
Fast forward to 2021, and my business has just achieived it's 5th birthday, my brand can be found in stockists across Australia and New Zealand, and has been purchased thousands of times by loyal existing repeat customers, and those wanting to explore a natural alternative to Beauty, alike.
We are now 18+ months post c0vid, and Gemma Vendetta Cosmetics is growing from strength to strength.
Gemma Vendetta Cosmetics is scaling - and it's happening FAST!
I am superbly proud to announce that Woolworths Everyday Market, curated by ToddCreates+ is now an online stockist for Gemma Vendetta Cosmetics.
But first, after putting in over $20,000+ of my own funds into my start-up, I'm seeking your donations via GoFundMe
- whether it's a little, or a lot. Whether you're a loyal customer, a new and curious customer, someone who doesn't even wear makeup but wants to champion small business.....here's my invitation to you.
Please pledge your support - so I can go into full blown high scale production! My first lot of products are available NOW!
Your donation/investment will be used for:
- Manufacturing the products from scratch, locally.
- Packaging and Labelling, locally.
- Promotion and Distribution - ongoing
- Postage and Freight - ongoing
- Warehousing - you don't want to see my 'dining room' right now!
- Hiring help with picking and preparation - I don't think Papa Vendetta is too keen to be working full-time in his retirement!!
Thank you for your astounding, and on-going support - I am SO humbled.
<-- https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-gemma-vendetta-cosmetics-to-scaleIf you're in a position to be an Angel Investor, I invite you to invest now - from as little as $1,000 as a micro-investor, or $20,000+, there's a special account set up for that. We can negotiate the terms, some angel investors have made contributions, without requirements for a percentage on top of their ROI, some angel investors have been excited to receive a years' worth of GVC products for their investment. I'm open to negotiation! I will not be giving away equity in my business to investors though.
With love, and warmest regards,
