Trusted by entrepreneurs
"Crowdfunding is one of the scariest but most rewarding things we've done. It was a great exercise in making sure our pitch was completely watertight and distilling our vision to be as compelling as possible. We also had some great exposure and now have a huge crowd of fantastic investor cheerleaders."
"Our Crowdcube campaign had an enormously positive impact on our sales before we even launched the product! Our 1,000+ investors want the product to exist and will be guaranteed customers as we launch. Word of mouth from our investors also played a defining role in getting the waiting list for our app to over 30,000 people!"
