Unripe Banana is a multifunctional creative and ethical space opening in East London in late summer 2017. 

We have three things on offer, a plant-based (vegan) coffee shop, a gallery and hireable artist studio's. We will also be hosting events, workshops and a variety of really amazing treats in the space. It's really a space to build an artist community.

We aim to make the space as sustainable as possible, sourcing our products and interior from local sources making sure air milage is low and making sure we're using the best things we can.

We have the space, and we have the ideas; what we need from you guys is to help us make sure we can make the space as amazing as it can be. 

We're looking for a minimum of £2,500; this will enable us to get our coffee set up perfect. We're a speciality coffee shop and it's key for us to ensure we're using the right equipment and it gets installed properly- this means technicians and plumbers etc.

If we raise £5000 we'll use to money to not only make the coffee shop perfect but we'll be able to get some fantastic recycled/up-cycled furniture for the shop and the studios.

If we raise £10,000+ it would really allow us to make our fantastic space come to life. We can change the floors throughout the whole space, and install daylight lighting in the gallery and studio spaces. It would also allow us to host charity events and have an events budget for them.

We're so excited to open now, thank you for your support so far.

Risks and challenges

If all goes to plan we aim to open at the start of September 2017. With the money raised from this kickstarter campaign it'll take our risks down dramatically.
There are no obvious risks with the space, it's a wonderful place that needs a refurb for our new business.
Having the money means we can get the installation done at the proper time by professionals (I'm not sure any of us really know how to lay a floor).
