What a fantastic first week which saw Cloud Funding raise over £160,000 from 100 new and existing shareholders. You can meet some of these cloudfunders every day on the blog and read about our press coverage too.

Our vision is to create a truly unique company in our industry with a culture that aligns customer and shareholder objectives; a company part owned by its customers.

Over the long term our intention is to achieve the market scale of Sage or IRIS, but Cloud Funding is also about creating a movement beyond financial reward. We are putting our business community at the heart of the company and our hope is that every single one of our 5,000 customers owns a share.

Join our movement over the next 30 days.

Here’s some Monday morning fun – a movement created start to finish in under three minutes:

  1. Hi JB,

    Thanks for the questions.

    Yes you are correct that percentage ownership would increase if the full allocation is not taken up.

    Setting a price is not easy. The financial metrics are changing all the time due to growth and what value do you put on the potential?

    The key question you have to answer is do you have a better opportunity to invest elsewhere with a risk/reward profile that you are happy with? If so then you should not invest in Clear Books.

    But if you believe Clear Books can capitalise on its potential and create one of the leading cloud business software houses in the UK then I suggest you head over to http://www.clearbooks.co.uk/cloudfunding/

    Cheers

    Tim
