Tickr, a UK-based investment mobile app, is now seeking 500,000 through its new equity crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs. Founded in 2017, Tickr describes itself as an impact investment app that has broken down the barriers for people to save towards their future by investing in the themes they care about.
“From as little as £5 per month anyone can invest in the portfolios that we have built; portfolios that are designed with the future in mind, investing in companies ranging from those promoting a more sustainable future to robotics and automation, equality and changing demographics. We believe everyone should be able to manage their finances in this way, and it’s our mission to make this happen.”
While sharing more details about the company, Tickr Co-Founder, Tom McGillycuddy, stated:
“Millennials are twice as likely to invest in a portfolio that reflects their values and beliefs, but it’s still the wide held view that investing into companies doing good and promoting change in the world is difficult or even impossible. tickr was built to smash this perception by providing a simple and forward-thinking way to invest in truly transformative companies combating social and environmental injustices, while potentially earning strong returns on their cash. We’ve been amazed with the uptake so far and we’re confident this crowdfunding campaign will take us one step further in realising our ambitions.”
Funds from the Seedrs round will be used to accelerate Tickr’s user acquisition as well as build several new features, including a visual newsfeed that gives users an interactive overview of the companies in portfolios and the work they are doing to amen an impact on the world. The campaign is set to close later this spring.
