Information The company had £150,000 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.

Idea

Tom came up with the idea for Grafter while working on a building project at home. He needed extra labour to wheelbarrow concrete for a couple of days, but couldn’t find anyone locally to help. Richard had experienced the same problem. His builder told him they relied on word-of-mouth and, if they managed to find anyone, often they weren’t any good.

With a digital background, Tom and Richard realised that an app which connects businesses with local labour was the answer and Grafter was born!

Many industries from builders to logistics regularly use temporary project labour and rely on agencies to find people. Grafter solves this, providing a cost-effective digital solution to find and manage labour, cutting out the expensive intermediaries.

Grafter helps manage the whole engagement - from finding and booking staff through cashless payment and reviews at the end. Clients get rated people and Grafters get a contract and payment security.

Grafter’s market is rapidly growing. More and more people are choosing to work in a flexible way - when and where they want. Self-employment in the UK increased from 3.8 million in 2008 to 4.6 million in 2015 (15% of all employment).

Grafter launched June 2017 on iOS and Google Play and already has over 5,000 registered users, with over 120 joining each day in August and is growing rapidly.
