The 23rd September 2013 marked the launch of Cloud Funding.

If you hadn’t noticed, Clear Books plc is raising £839,913 to grow the business and the day got off to a great start with coverage in the Financial Times.

As a provider of cloud accounting software, we like numbers. So here is the first day in numbers:

  • By lunchtime we had surpassed the first big milestone, £100,000.
  • In the first day we raised £114,870 in total which is approximately 14% of our target.
  • Excluding existing shareholders, the smallest purchase of shares was £8.94 and the largest was £9,994.92.
  • We were thrilled to welcome on board 41 new investors.


Further updates will follow and, of course, there are 36 days left to join the team.
