Dear Citizenfund supporter,
We hope that you have not been too badly affected by the floods and that you are doing well.
For our part, July was a little quieter, which allowed us to move forward on certain issues and prepare the communication campaign for the autumn.
📰 📰 You may have seen this article from La Libre which reports on our investments in Ma Ferme and BPart.
✅ We have tested a pre-voting system with our cooperators: we present them with projects in 2-3 lines and they decide whether we present them to the Selection Committee for further analysis.
📢 It’s no surprise that we will be doing a communication campaign in the autumn. If you want to give us a hand in the meantime, we’d love to! In any case, we count on you to relay it. Objective: to reach half a million euros of investment capacity before the end of the year!
