Coming Soon – Reboot Britain
1st June 2020
We will be launching the Reboot Britain campaign to help get British Businesses going again and you can make a difference.
In this unprecedented time, Crowd2Fund has been doing everything it can to help both investors and businesses navigate through the uncertain financial landscape. While it’s challenging for most, all clouds have a silver lining and there is an abundance of opportunity for SMEs - we’re entering the age of the entrepreneur.
In addition to our close conversations with HM Treasury and the British Business Bank, we’ve been preparing the platform for a re-launch with a proposition suitable for the post Covid19 economy.
Now is the time to harness the Crowd2Fund platform to help reignite forward-thinking UK Businesses in a way that makes them stronger than ever before – we’re launching the ‘Reboot Britain’ campaign and you’re invited to take part.
Rishi Sunak, The Chancellor of the Exchequer, launched the Future Fund on May 20th, which will be administrated by the British Business Bank. The scheme is designed to support innovative UK SMEs create the jobs of the future. An initial £500m has been allocated to be co-invested alongside private investors by September. The Future Fund is a unique scheme where loans are convertible into equity and the Government will match 100% of investments in the business. This is a phenomenal scheme which will support future job creation and innovation.
As part of the Reboot Britain campaign, we will be significantly expanding the Crowd2Fund platform to be able to fund 1000s of UK businesses per year using our unique investment approach. The ‘Reboot Britain’ campaign, will enable pioneering UK entrepreneurs to access this investment with the support and mentorship of the Crowd2Fund Investor Community. It will also give SMEs a platform to scale internationally. Innovative businesses will receive growth investment and we will provide a springboard for the best UK businesses, who are ready for growth. Platform features will be significantly improved under the campaign.
Monthly interest repayments will be paid back to investors or investors have the enhanced ability to convert investments into equity. Alternatively, if investors require access to their capital, they could sell their investment via the Exchange to another investor within the community.
After the launch of the campaign, we will seek to work with businesses in growth sectors such as HealthTech, Remote Working, AI, E-commerce and Environmental. These sectors are more important now than ever before and we believe they will continue to grow in this new era. All Reboot Britain businesses will continue to undergo an amended thorough risk and due diligence assessment, along with affordability checks.
As conversations progress and we ramp-up towards the launch, we will keep you updated and provide more detail around the mechanics of this truly exciting offering. Crowd2Fund looks forward to the future and we look forward to you joining us - as we Reboot Britain together.
Investing in start-ups and early-stage businesses involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of investment and dilution, and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Investing in start-ups may expose the individual concerned to a significant risk of losing all of the money or other assets invested. Peer to business lending through Crowd2Fund is not the same as holding a bank or building society savings account. When making a peer to business loan, your capital lent to a borrower is not covered for compensation in the event of a loss by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
