Crowdfunding Expert: IdeaSquares
What led you to set up IdeaSquares?
IdeaSquares itself was funded via crowdfunding. The process of raising money in this way was scary, very public and difficult to navigate, in that you don’t know what you don’t know! Despite raising successfully, I remember thinking it would have been really useful to have some expert help to make sure I had made the most of our campaign and so our crowdfunding support model was born.
What service does IdeaSquares offer?
We understand that every fundraising attempt is different, so we offer personalised project management that supports all aspects of crowdfunding campaigns for Europe’s leading equity platforms. We focus on preparing companies properly for crowdfunding and boosting their campaign’s potential. Our clients have an extremely high success rate on their chosen equity platforms and are typically ready to fund in 4-12 weeks. We’ve now helped hundreds of companies raise millions.
What types of businesses do you work with?
Can you give an example of a recent campaign you supported?
A recent favourite of ours was Savvy Navvy who raised c£330k on Seedrs, exceeding their initial target by over 260%. They were just so much fun to work with. They took everything we said on board and nailed the execution of their campaign after ten weeks of careful planning, and it paid off. We would 100% love to support them on future raises, and we hope the feeling is mutual.
