“I find it energising to invest in small companies, and incredibly rewarding to see how my money is helping to make a positive difference in local communities.
It feels exciting to have a hands-on approach, and to stay in close contact with the organisations I am supporting. As well as their financial performance, I always look at the stories of the impact the projects I fund are having on real people.”

Crowdfunding news, articles, features, blogs and more
Investments offered on this platform are not readily
realisable, which means that they may be difficult to sell and you may not get
back the full amount invested. Investments are not covered by the Financial
Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and your capital is at risk and returns are
not guaranteed. Repayment of capital and interest or payment of dividends will
be dependent on the success of the organisation's business model and past performance isn’t a
reliable indicator of future performance. You should
always read the offer document in full before deciding whether or not to invest as it
will cover risks specific to an individual investment. You can read more about
the general risks associated with making these types of investments. If
you are unsure if any of these investments are right for you, you should
contact an Independent Financial Adviser.
