Collider, an accelerator that is dedicated to marketing and advertising technology startups, has launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs to raise £680,000. The company previously secured £700,000 on the funding portal in 2015 and £420,000 in 2014.
The accelerator, which was founded in 2013, has reportedly delivered four accelerating programs that invested 3.6 million into 34 startups that receive help from its existing network of industry sectors investors. Now, Collider is giving investors the opportunity to invest in its next portfolio of startups who join its accelerator academy each fall.
“We will facilitate deep engagement with giant global corporates such as Financial Times, Unilever and The National Lottery, fast-tracking their access to the newest innovative technologies and so helping the startups go to market and scale up. This will provide you with a unique opportunity to invest in a portfolio of remarkably well supported madtech startups over the long term with a view to maximize returns. You will also be investing in a growing sector where the UK leads the way in Europe.”
Collider proves more than 120 hours of one-on-one coaching with each startup in its accelerator program. The program’s demo day also runs as a commercial launch and involves hundreds of individuals from potential clients that watch each of the startups’ presentations. Funds will go towards each startup that participates in the Collider Class of 2017, and it’ll be given in rounds:
- Round 1: Up to 10 startups will each receive £50k, fewer fees for 7% equity to investors
- Round 2: Up to 5 of the startups will each receive a further investment of £70k, fewer fees for a further 7% in equity to investors.
So far, the campaign has successfully raised nearly £550,000. It is set to close mid-December.
