Crowdcube crowdfunding worked well for us as we were able to join the discussion on the campaign’s page, providing information and answering questions from the investors, and at the same time share our future plans for our services. Crowdfunding is part of our £2m fundraising. Recently we have been contacted by a few potential investors and partners through the process. That’s a fantastic news !”
