Below is a brief video from Fleur Emery from Green & Pleasant, brewers of all-natural, craft-brewed lager and lemon shandy. Fleur shares here experience with crowdfunding on Crowdcube. Earlier this year the campaign raised over £122,000 in equity on the investment crowdfunding platform.
The crowdfunding campaign raised the funds from 56 investors which will now own 30% in the British beer company. Since the amount raised was less than £150,000 the invstors will be able to take advantage of the SEIS tax credits which incentivizes investments in early stage companies.
Crowdcube is one of the leaders in the equity crowdfunding world. They are expected to surpass £10,000,000 raised in equity crowdfunding in the next few weeks. The UK based comapany has recently announced expansion plans in both Sweden and Canada.
