“There is every reason to praise FundedByMe's platform and it’s dedicated network, as the biggest investor in this round discovered our campaign by chance when investing in another company on FundedByMe. This latest crowdfunding round means that we are now over 500 dedicated shareholders and I want to thank all of them for sharing our vision and goal, to allow everyone to become shareholders in a leading portfolio of investments focusing on plant-based companies. I am extra proud and grateful for the tremendous support this latest funding round received, during these challenging times for individuals and companies, as a result of the global COVID-19 crisis," says Måns Ullerstam CEO Kale United
