Your Hero Entrepreneurs

Their success is your success

Your Hero Entrepreneurs

27th April 2020

At Crowd2Fund, we’ve worked with over 500 incredible businesses, helping them to raise funding and grow. At the core of each of these businesses is an entrepreneur who day in, day out, works tirelessly to make the company successful. In our eyes, each one of these entrepreneurs is a hero and they each have a unique story to tell. They come from all walks of life and are developing products and services across a wide range of industries.


This year, through our new Hero Campaign, we’re shifting the spotlight onto these amazing business people, showcasing who they are and what they have achieved. Below is a sneak preview of some of the heroes we will be showcasing over the coming months across a range of media, both on and offline.


MARIE CUDENNEC - CEO & Co-Founder of Goldfinger Factory



Marie set out for Goldfinger Factory to be a sustainable upcycling business and social enterprise. They create bespoke furniture and interiors, while helping artisans and artisans-in-the-making become self-sustainable through craft and, in turn, save materials from landfill. With the help of Crowd2Fund investors, they were able to expand their business to have a greater impact.

Phillip founded the restaurant and bar group, Cubana, after experiencing the inspirational street food and exotic cocktails of Cuba while travelling. He sought to bring back these authentic flavours and lively atmosphere to London. Unsurprisingly, Cubana is extremely popular and to sustain their strong rate of growth, Phillip has raised funds with Crowd2Fund multiple times, increasing the capacity of their restaurants and opening new bars.
