Rupert gets a call from crack(ed) fundraiser Frida de Thirteenth, who has a great idea. “Surely you have heard of Kickstarter?” she says. “Cappuccino Pharmaceuticals can raise money for drug development and clinical trials.”
“But Kickstarter is where people donate, not invest,” Rupert says. “It’s enough to start up and do some limited project. Who would just give us millions of dollars for a clinical trial?”
“Frida understands your confusion,” says Frida. “That’s why KickPantser exists.”
“Ki – What kind of name is KickPantser?”
“KickPantser is to sustain an ongoing concern through gifts,” Frida says. Cappuccino must donate millions to a central funding organization. They in turn give grants for development and clinical trials. To Cappuccino.”
“Hmmm…” Rupert ponders the idea.
