Blueprints, a UK-based investment platform for equitable development projects, is set to close its equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube with more than £1 million in funding. The investment round was launched in January, originally seeking £950,000 and has attracted 300 investors.
As previously reported, Blueprints’ mission is to empower the growth of developing regions by providing citizens globally with the tools to build equitable societies in a fair, transparent, and accountable manner. The investment platform revealed:
“The model Blueprints promotes will serve as a viable and scalable alternative to the traditional top-down aid and government-funding model which has repeatedly failed. Blueprints will achieve this goal by connecting local populations, impact investors and qualified operating entities in a scalable and repeatable manner, while leveraging innovative technologies to connect large numbers of global citizens with regional development efforts so as to allow them to financially support such efforts at a variety of scales.”
Blueprints also reported it has a global network of highly-influential supporters, which includes the likes of Lord Hastings CBE, Dr. Ernesto Sirolli, Richard Attias, and Dawn Nakagawa. Funds from the Crowdcube round will be used to continue the growth and development of the Blueprints platform. The funding round is set to close later this evening.
