Crowdfunding, has a proven track record as an extremely interesting and powerful option, applicable for any business that needs funds for working capital, stock, fixed assets, a sustainability programme or a major expansion.
Removing the traditional lending channels of banks and investors from the equation, this investment model allows businesses to attract a crowd who all contribute to funding. As individual investments can start from as little as £10, there is huge potential for both parties. As an example, BrewDog received £4.25 million by offering shares in return for lifetime discounts at their bars and online shop.
