Coming to Columbus, Ohio SPR/SUM 2020
JoJo's Java Lounge is preparing to open its doors to the Columbus, Ohio area in Spring/Summer 2020!
We are a Minority, Female, and Veteran owned organization that is prepared to offer a venue that inspires young female professionals and creatives to come together in a safe space.
This location will act as a beautiful trifecta, in that it will be a coffee shop, coworking space, and event venue. We are supporting local bakers, performing and visual artists, and are aiming to work with local manufacturers for our menu.
By donating, you will be assisting in the acquisition of our space, proper training, equipment, and launch ceremonies.
Until now, Columbus has lacked a true space that allows trendy and creative professionals and students a space to gather. While we support the small community shops and venues in place, the desire for a chic, open concept, no hate space is truly a need.
Our overall budget is $125k, and we are determined to get a good majority of that through crowdfunding and grants. As mentioned, the owner is a Black female who served our country for nine years. Aside from that, she is the owner of her own creative design studio and event planning company, so her network and community feedback (thus far) has been tremendous.
We would like to raise at least $75k by August 31, 2019, as to secure our venue and GET TO WORK with a well known coffee company in the area.
We KNOW that we can do this, and we KNOW that the Columbus community and beyond will help. As we encourage more women to find their independence and dominate every field of entrepreneurship, we need all hands on deck.
Are you ready to help elevate the female leaders around us? Let's do this!
