Information * Owing to ongoing discussions with prospective investors, this campaign has been extended by 7 days and will now close on Saturday the 15th of April. * The company had £87,600 of its SEIS allowance remaining at the start of this raise. This will be allocated to investors on a first come first served basis. Any investments made after that limit has been exceeded will not be SEIS eligible but will potentially be eligible for EIS. The potential tax relief of any investment will be confirmed by email to investors, after they have submitted their applications to invest, and will depend on an investor's individual circumstances. Floom has raised £81,600 from lead investors prior to launching on Crowdcube, which makes up 20% of its funding target and has been reflected on the campaign.

Idea

Floom is designed to solve the problem of finding and sending a quality bouquet of flowers. It is a marketplace that brings flowers crafted by a real florist to the time-poor customer. We are bringing technology, e-commerce and design to an industry that is run by archaic processes and systems. Our research suggests that very few independent florists have e-commerce websites, and have found the large conglomerates that do offer flowers online to have mundane bouquets & a confusing online experience.

Our florists are vetted for quality, their listing photography standardised and their bouquets listed based on the florist's chosen delivery areas. Florists are given access to a dashboard that allows them to add products, set prices, & publish to the website. Customers visit the site, enter the post-code, and choose a bouquet that suits them.

We plan to do for flowers what Deliveroo are doing for takeaway; bringing quality and choice to the customer and championing the local independent business along the way.

The model means Floom holds no risk with what is otherwise a rapidly perishable product, as well as no large warehouse and frozen storage costs.

Trading since March of 2016, over 350,000 unique visitors have been on the site and return purchasers average at 40%, growing by an average of 23% each month.
