A small French startup called (literally, “”), which organizes local deliveries of locally-produced French produce, just crowd-sourced an investment round of $140,000.That’s right. They actually pulled off getting crowdfunded, which is something that startups have been talking about for a very long time, but few, if any, have ever accomplished.

This is different from crowdfunding on sites like Kickstarter because this is actually an equity investment, as opposed to a cash grant/donation. opened up a separate crowd-funding site with minimum commitments of €2,000 and signed up 30 investors who are users of the site. It went so well that it’s planning a second raise by October.
