Celebrating Richard Lewis

Founder of CEC Energy

19th January 2023

 

We are thrilled to celebrate another entrepreneur, Richard Lewis from CEC Energy. He is a returning client of Crowd2Fund with perfect repayment history. His campaign was a success, raising £53k in 14 days. We wanted to take this opportunity to find out more about his journey and goals as an entrepreneur. 

 

 

How would you describe your business in one sentence? 

We aim to provide a service to the property industry, where we can supply all necessary certificates for compliance with the least headache.

What was your original vision when starting your company? 

We started just concentrating on EPC’s but saw property owners having to establish relationships with many suppliers, so we aimed to become a one-stop destination for all certifications.

How has the company transformed over time?     

We have had to find employees and contractors who understand that our customers are the most important part of our business and maintain high standards of professionalism when issuing certificates. Next, we found we were being asked to add plumbing repairs and that led to installing or replacing boilers, so we cover a wide range of services.

What does winning as a business look like to you?  

Obviously increasing turnover and profits, but also maintaining long term relationships with our customers who are the most important part of a business. If we had the funds, we could also roll out the vision in other centres of England, probably through franchises or with partners.

What drove you to work with Crowd2Fund?  

Crowd2Fund operate a professional lending model, we have used them in the past and always find them to be easy to work with. Our first loan showed us that Chris and his team can deliver in a very helpful way.

How did the investment from Crowd2Fund impact your business? 

It provided funds at the right time and enabled us to reach the next milestone we set ourselves, we hope this time will be the same to get us to keep improving our services.

 

We are proud to see how your investments are helping boost British businesses. Supporting entrepreneurs like Richard Lewis in his growth and expansion over the years is a great achievement.

We look forward to bringing you more opportunities this year.
