Monday 4th August 2014 marks the official launch to the general public of Cloud Funding II, our second crowdfunding round. Customers and the general public have a second opportunity to become a part-owner of Clear Books plc. Head to www.clearbooks.co.uk/cloudfunding2 to find out more and apply for shares today, priced at £12 per share.
In 2013, the company became a plc and launched Cloud Funding I. We took the innovative approach of building our own crowdfunding platform and inviting our community of customers to invest. The campaign was hugely successful, oversubscribed and raised the target of £0.8m in less than 40 days.
Our target for Cloud Funding II is £3.3 million. Over the past few weeks shares have been available to existing shareholders and we have already reached a significant milestone and raised over £0.5m.
The first round got coverage in the FT and Forbes and we’re delighted that Cloud Funding II is also getting noticed with this recent article in AccountancyAge, where I said:
“If you enjoy investing in small British businesses, you can do so from just £12. Our customers are small business owners and entrepreneurs who know our company intimately – they rely on our software every day to run their own businesses. It’s a wonderful validation of our mission, to help small businesses in the UK, that these entrepreneurs continue to invest and support Clear Books as we grow.”
