We are raising $45,000 to open Proof Oakland's Bottle Shop. Located the historic Uptown District in Oakland California, Proof is small retail store selling craft spirits, beer, wine, & cocktail ware. Proof will provide everything needed for the perfect cocktail. 

Committed to spirit and wine education Proof will offer classes and tastings taught by favorite local bartenders, master distillers, and wine makers. 

The funds raised through the Kickstarter campaign will garner community support, raise awareness for Proof, and provide working capitol to apply for a small business loan, start the licensing fees, and provide 3 months rent. 

Oakland is undergoing a business renaissance and we are going to be a part of that movement!

I have the space, a strong concept, and an even stronger team. All we need now is your support to reach or goal of $45,000. 

Risks and challenges

Having signed the lease we are on a strict timeline to move forward with Proof to raise the total start up costs of $150,000.

I have a strong team and a detailed financial plan to hit our milestones and reach our total goal.
