Small Small intern and current Georgetown University undergrad, Deanna Arthur, wrote a great feature on Small Small for The Corp’s website. The Corp is the largest student run company in the world and is responsible for several grocery, convenience, and coffee stores on Georgetown’s campus…in addition to being Deanna’s other job (as if being a student isn’t enough). The article highlights how Georgetown has played and continues to play a key role in shaping Small Small. Thank you to Deanna and the Corp for the great article!

The support during the crowdfunding campaign has been inspiring and humbling. We couldn’t be happier that people want Small Small to succeed and enjoy our products. All said and done, after 21 days on indiegogo we raised $4,141 from 72 donors and emerged as the newest food company in DC. In the next two weeks we’re so excited to start shipping our first products and getting your feedback!
