VPAR, a UK-based golf technology platform, has successfully secured £1 million during its equity crowdfunding round on Seedrs. The website launched the initiative earlier this month as it prepares for expansion.
As previously reported, VPAR was founded in 2007 and is seeking to change the golf experience for amateur golf players through its technology platform. The company claimed its first product was a live-scoring service that gave amateur golfers the ability to check their standings on a live leaderboard on the course, in clubhouses, and online.
“Running thousands of tournaments across 22 countries, we supply Live Scoring to some of the most recognized brands and world renowned golf courses. These events expose our brand to thousands of golfers every year and lay the foundations for the growth of our app. We now have 200,000 app users, growing at more than 4,000 a week during the golf season.”
VPAR also stated it has hosted over 750 events each year ranging from Corporate Golf Days, Golf Outings, Charity Golf Days, Club Championships, Amateur, and Pro Am Tournaments.
“Spectators can even browse the scores live online, as well as viewing information and statistics before, during and after the event. Engaging an online audience creates further exposure, extending the reach of the event and adding value to sponsors.”
The platform then added:
“We’re proud to be the pioneer and global leader of Live Golf Scoring. Golf clubs and event managers across the globe trust our technology to score thousands of tournaments and outings each year.”
VPAR’s campaign is set to close later this spring.
