It is really good to see people who have not had the best start in life being able to kick start their businesses and have access to funding that would not have been available to them before. For me this is the real value of crowd funding
AN ENTREPRENEUR who says he has experienced homelessness and racism has launched a crowd-funding campaign to get his ethical clothing business off the ground. Redhill designer Winston Hoyte, 39, needs £4,500 to kick-start his business, called Mancinism by Sunday. Mr Hoyte, of Bramley Close, said: "My aim with my clothing designs is to break down barriers and tear away stigmas, to re-educate and open people's minds to alternative ways of thinking."
