“Funding the wonderful”
Last year in the midst of covid chaos we launched Veluba. What a ride it’s been so far and we couldn’t have done it without Crowdcube – funding the wonderful.
It’s March 2020. We’d been working away, planning, creating the Veluba and finding the perfect HQ to operate from. It was now crunch time and we were ready to launch the business – but first – crowdfunding. We knew crowdfunding was the way to go for us, we could raise awareness and funds at the same time whilst giving people the opportunity to invest in our business and the future of eco-friendly transport in London.
Crowdcube gives start-ups and early-stage businesses the opportunity to raise funding by being backed by the crowd, a chance for anyone from large investment firms to everyday individuals to invest in businesses that they believe in and help them to smash their crowdfunding targets. Over the last decade, Crowdcube has made it possible for everyday investors to own shares in some of Europe’s fastest-growing companies.
When we got the chance to work with Crowdcube and wrap a Veluba for them we were thrilled, we fired up the printer and rolled up our sleeves. The Crowdcube bike is striking wrapped in their iconic brand colours and has been attracting a huge amount of attention as we whiz around on tours and cab journeys in central London. We’re really pleased to be working with them and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
