Crowdfunder.co.uk, the UK’s #1 rewards and community shares crowdfunding platform, is closing its £1,000,000 fundraise on Crowdcube, the UK’s leading investment crowdfunding platform. To date, the dynamic partnership has secured over £919,039 from over 623 investors. Last week, further excitement was added to the successful Crowdfunder.co.uk/Crowdcube campaign, when the Managing Director of the Reward-based Crowdfunding, Phil Geraghty, announced Creative England has offered up £200,000 toward the campaign.
On LinkedIn today, Owen Wallis, Product Lead at Crowdfunder.co.uk, commented, “We’re now in the final push with just 9% of our target left to fund. We’ve made some great announcements along the way such as our relationship with Creative England and Amazon, and the launch of Crowdfunder Plus.”
In other news, Crowdfunder.co.uk has partnered with Amazon Launchpad to help project owners sell their crowdfunded products to millions of Amazon customers. The Amazon Launchpad platform launched in the UK to help startups sell their products, both here and around the world, helping identify new, inspired and cutting-edge products.
“Crowdfunder is proud of its track record in developing great business ideas so we are excited to be working with Amazon Launchpad,” shared Phil Geraghty, MD of Crowdfunder.co.uk. “By partnering with Amazon, British start-ups will enjoy the support of one of the world’s most visionary companies, with everything from fulfillment to customer service taken care of, along with the opportunity to sell their products to tens of millions of potential customers around the world. We can’t wait to see the results.”
Amazon’s newest marketplace has invited crowdfunding platforms, like Crowdfunder.co.uk, and sister company Crowdcube, to be one of the first to offer Amazon Launchpad to project owners in the UK, according to CrowdfunderUK’s blog. Earlier this year, Mass Fidelity’s The Core joined Amazon Launchpad. Amazon Launchpad will be one of the first partnerships to feature in Crowdfunder Plus+, Crowdfunder’s new online marketplace which aims to connect people and projects to the funding and support they need from partners.
