FAQs

Equity crowdfunding is the process whereby people (i.e. the ‘crowd’) invest in an early- stage unlisted company (a company that is not listed on a stock market) in exchange for shares in that company. A shareholder has partial ownership of a company and stands to profit on an Exit Event (i.e. IPO, merger or sale) should the company continue to perform well and increase in value. The opposite is also true, so if the company fails investors can lose some, or all, of their investment

We've received investment requests from our community for years. Alongside our HNW and institutional investors, we're now offering this opportunity to bring you closer to the business by owning shares.

Your investment is EIS eligible, meaning as a UK taxpayer you can claim back 30% of your investment via income tax relief. More information is available here. >
