Thanks to you, to all of the winemakers, wine shops, restaurants, bars, bloggers, journalists, writers, lovers of natural wine, to those who discovered the app by chance, to those who visited us at tastings, to our friends, our parents, our families, to the entire Raisin team who has done phenomenal work, and to those who spread the word as well. Thank you, thank you, thank you. 100,000 downloads seems to be right at our fingertips 👍
It’s official! Raisin has qualified for the second round of Fabrique AVIVA! A huge thank you to all of our users: winemakers, friends, owners of bars, restaurants, wine shops, as well as the bloggers, magazines, editors, and all of the natural wine lovers who voted for us. With your support, Raisin has been selected as a finalist in the category “Environment, biodiversity, energy.”
The next test will take place the beginning of June, and this time we will have 10 minutes to convince a jury of experts: 5 minutes to present the project, and 5 minutes of questions…intense!
While the first round relied entirely on the ability of each team to mobilize their community, from now on the criteria for evaluating each project is in the hands of the jury, based on the following elements:
-The team and the project (30%) : presentation, coherence of project, ability to unify.
-The usefulness of the project (30%) : innovation + measure of impact
-The economic credibility of the project (40%): employment, performance, distribution of wealth
What’s next? In June, the big winners will be revealed. In the case that we win, the financial aid would help us to promote natural wine all over world, develop Raisin in an autonomous and independent manner, and put in place functionalities that would generate revenue. In short, the money would be very useful. We are crossing our fingers and we will keep you informed!
