The consultant market is growing rapidly, both in Sweden and globally. Being an entirely new market it needs an entirely new platform for cooperation and Brainville is that platform.
Continuous spread of antibiotic resistant bacterias is a known threat to public health and we are glad to develop a product that will enable a drastic decrease in antibiotic use. Something that can diminish the threat.
Mockberg is run by a strong community with a passion for design. We would like to make our customers a part of the company, and we would also like to grow globally, so equity crowdfunding is a great tool in order to do so. Our goal is to nurture those who wear our watches.
I like the combination of form and function. Mockberg was born with the goal to create a watch that is the definition of Scandinavian design. It is increbibly exciting that we can expand together with our costumers.
Tobias Berglund has been in the Laika Consulting management team since the start in 2014, thereby he has firsthand insight of the changes that have occured in the world of finance. His experience as an entrepreneur in addition to his years of strategy in raising capital as well as financial communication will be essential for FundedByMe’s further growth.
We believe that we have the perfect circumstances for further growth since an increasing amount of people are interested in investing, which is the perfect conditions for crowdfunding. At the same time, the standards are high for those seeking investments - both regarding the legislative demands from authorities but also the demands of experienced investors. I am convinced that a consolidation of Laika's expertise in investor relations services alongside FundedByMe digital presence and strong brand, will create a synergy made to benefit our customers and network of investors.
We believe that the Blinkee team is world class, their execution is brilliant. They are growing very fast, from 0 to 600 scooters over the first 1,5 year without external investments. And what is worth mentioning - they are already profitable at this stage. Being both disruptive and eco-friendly, we are really optimistic about FundedByMe Poland’s first campaign aiming for Blinkee’s expansion into the Nordic countries.
Poland has a very exciting market and the team running the Polish office are enormously driven and well connected. We are extra excited to see that the first case launched is for electric vehicles as this is the future and we at FundedByMe are especially good at crowdfunding electric vehicle companies. If the first case is this cool, imagine the rest of the cases to be launched. Cool cases and a huge market of investors create a very good combination.
Our first round was a great success and it has enabled the launch of our online shop. It has also empowered our team. We are now prepared for what the future has in store for us.
We find crowdfunding to be a way of inviting the public, previous visitors, and existing advertisers at ATTITUDE STHLM, to become a part of the future of advertising for both the Scandinavian market but also the British market. We are building an ad-tech platform scalable for the global market from the start.
Our vision is to digitalise the agency and convert knowledge, relationships and the amount of trust we already have into a successful and sustainable business model. A model that will not only run a few days a year, but all year around. When we are finished with the development of our digital marketplace together with the A-CIRQ, we will have reached our goal of becoming a unique omni-channel media business - where the industry can meet the consumer all year around.
Our app helps companies and individuals to increase their safety. The idea is built on the ability to share information in smart networks combined with traditional safety devices such as alarms and cameras. The solution is a cloud-based global emergency centre. We offer everyone a service free of charge, where they can create their own local solutions and communicate with others in private or public networks based on the situation.
Our hope is that many people want to join our team in creating a safe and secure society by becoming a partner or investor in Intrasenze.
Food is something that engages people, you not only invest in the products, you also recommend them to your friends and by doing so help the producers. Food is something that always unify people, therefore gathering people through crowdfunding comes naturally. We are convinced that the next generation of leading food companies will be run through crowdfunding, a sort of capitalistic corporation.
The team at FundedByMe is very proud to be a part of the collaboration with FoodTech village and Sweden FoodTech. We find the synergy between food and crowdfunding intriguing and we have seen many food companies locate investors through FundedByMe then grown accordingly.
Within the first year, we want to show the most innovative startups with great potential, which are ready to expand globally. We want to build a bridge between the experienced Swedish investment market and Polish startups and investors.
We believe in cross-border investments helping innovative startups expand across all borders more easily. Polish entrepreneurs have a reputation of being diligent, meticulous and executive.
Laika Consulting was one of the first companies in Sweden to work with crowdfunding when we established the brand in 2004. I look forward to follow the company's growth closely. A combination of Laika's expertise in listed companies, together with FundedByMe with its international and digital presence, can create new opportunities for growth.
Laika is a particularly well-managed company that we have partnered with since 2012 and we have seen over the years that we have similar ambitions, visions and attitudes; namely to improve and change parts of the old inefficient financial world. In our company's growth, we look at this acquisition as a very interesting step, and we estimate that the consolidation will be beneficial and feasible and lead to synergies that can be measured through cash flow, efficiency and growth.
The aim of our platform is to connect individual investors and entrepreneurs. In Poland, we are looking for the most innovative startups that are targeting international markets and
seeking to raise €100,000 to €900,000 in Sweden and other countries. We are going to help Polish companies reach the Nordic market, as well as build the community of individual investors in Poland and connect them with the Scandinavian ones
I think this sounds silly to say but crowdfunding is a dream coming true to me! When we presented this project almost three years ago to the investors and the group of people involved, we had, on the last page of the agenda: when we reach a certain level, we're gonna go on a crowdfunding campaign to build true ambassadors, people who love the project, so that we can find people to talk about us, because if people are engaged financially and product-wise and in the concept, they're gonna talk about us - they're gonna be our missionaries out, so this is a huge day, and the fact that we can get this going
We are very proud to present this unique opportunity together with The Cords & Co. With the awesome journey they have behind Happy Socks, it will be exciting to follow their new venture. With crowdfunding we are convinced that the opportunities for establishing passionate brand ambassadors will increase.
It's good to finally have the Ministry of Finance's proposal written down on 549 pages, where they clearly take a stand on crowdfunding. The ministry also see community benefits with crowdfunding and wants to strengthen its marketplace, something that is very good for FundedByMe. Of course, the challenge is to see how quickly the proposal can go to referral, taking into account the newly proposed EU regulations. FundedByMe has been self-regulated in the last 5 years and now we can deal with very clear directives. We are very pleased that the report has been presented and it is seen as beneficial for our business.
It was also of value to hear the Minister of Financial Markets raise the value of crowdfunding at a time when more entrepreneurs seek crowdfunding as a financial option. The low interest rate has furthermore contributed to a high increase of private individuals looking for alternative investments in startups,
Never in our wild dreams could we have imagined we would reach these numbers. Given that it took us a whole year to raise the first million, it's humbling and amazing to see the execution of our team, network and technology that we’ve built. This is still just the beginning of our journey that changes and improves the financial world and reaching this number motivates us even more to work even harder
I am overwhelmed and proud of what we have achieved as a team in recent years. Fintech with scalable global technology enables more people to gain access to capital. It offers a large group of people opportunities to look at and consider whether they want to be a part of entrepreneurs journeys.
FundedByMe offers something new to private investors and the 500 million raised show that it is a high demand for our services. FundedByMe is a pioneer, which gives the company a unique position, but also an obligation to be responsibly shape the future market for unlisted companies. We want to make investing in unlisted companies an option for everyone, in other words, available to both women and men in a wide range of ages. We already see that female entrepreneurs and investors dare to take more space with us than in other traditional financial investments
We have a disruptive approach to everything we do and besides raising funds for our journey ahead, we also see crowdfunding as an opportunity to grow our business by engaging with passionate people who truly believe in our mission and wants to be part of our community. We believe that is the only way to build brands these days. You cannot do it all on your own. You need to create lasting relationships with people who are as passionate about your brand as you are, who can be fully committed brand ambassadors. By giving corduroy enthusiasts worldwide a possibility to own a piece of cords and become a part of The Cords & Co family, there are no limitations to what we can achieve. We will build this brand together
The team behind this company are an inspiration for many of us on how to build greatness out of great ideas. We hope that many of our members will join the prominent investors on the path ahead on something that has enormous potential to become The Next Big Thing.
I can announce that in Paradiset we have 69% female owners. / proud minority.
We originally built FundedByMe to ensure that good entrepreneurs, who are not necessarily stereotypes such as women, would also have access to a stable and healthy source of funding. What drives me forward is mainly when I see that my daughter, despite being born in one of the world's most modernised countries, will not have the same access to capital if she chooses to become an entrepreneur.
We see that women invest more heavily than previously in unlisted companies. By 2016, 22% of investors were women and by 2017, it has grown to be 27% of investors. Our goal is to irrespective of gender, engage all Swedes to look at unlisted companies as the gold mine that could potentially be. For both entrepreneurs and investors, nationally and internationally.
We share the philosophy behind Isabella Löwengrip's Nordic Tech House and have been looking forward to present the first case together. The team behind Qurant operates in a very exciting market with high potential for growth, one that is also in need of innovation. This is the first partnership of many between Nordic Tech House and FundedByMe.
During our years in the industry, we have seen a clear need to change traditional occupational healthcare. Surveys show that sick leave increased during 2017 and more importantly that 40% of it can be avoided through quick access and the right targeted efforts. At the same time, 1.5 million Swedes are without occupational health care. Qurant, Sweden's first innovative digital business health, intends to take a significant part of that market.
FundedByMe has often used FrontOffice as a success story to show how a smart and dynamic company can use crowdfunding to raising equity. We were part of something unique back in 2016 and we are now once again aiming for something unique in the industry. This feels wonderful and interesting.
We have reached the maximum goal of 20 million SEK and we would like to thank all participants for the enormous interest, dedication and their will to invest in us. We have, of course, created a waiting list for those who didn’t make it in time. Now our work really starts and to show what we can achieve by making FundedByMe a common household name alongside a FundedByMe stock, that the general public can embrace as their own. Further on we have to focus on our international expansion and continue to capture strategic beach fronts with selected partners. This is just the beginning, we feel rejuvenated, with a motivated and hungry team, plus that we feel that we have complete support from our investors. The markets situation is very interesting and we look forward to leading the way in changing the world of finance.
We were early out in identifying the trends to what today is known as the sharing-economy and are today common strategies for all type of companies, to say: engaging and involving their owners directly. We stood by our vision and delivered on it. Not only did we create a global company, we created a whole new market segment. Coming years look very promising and we keep identifying new trends that we are acting on.
We have identified FundedByMe, the fastest-growing crowdfunding platform in the Nordics, as a strategic partner to join forces with us in the UAE to provide a platform that will empower investors and enable entrepreneurs to unleash innovation and spur growth across the region.
We are honoured to have been voted nr 1 and excited to be invited to pitch at the prestigious European FinTech Awards.
Our team has always been good at identifying and acting on macro trends. We saw a paradigm shift that led a whole new group of individuals to look for new ways to invest and engage with companies. Then when we realized that crowdfunding could only work long-term if it is a global phenomenon. And now we are seeing that, from a customer perspective, consolidation of the market is necessary.
Our new partner in FundedByMe Mexico is well connected and shares our passion that every entrepreneur should have the best chance ever to become The Next Big Thing and everyone should be able to invest in that potential next Unicorn. We bring a pool of global investors to the table that are looking for exciting new opportunities to invest.
We are super excited to have two such experienced individuals joining our already experienced board. With three Johan’s (Chairman Johan Jörgenson was the first), myself and Choon-Seng Tan in Singapore comprising the FundedByMe board the future is looking global.
The traction we are seeing at this stage of the FundedByMe lifecycle is incredible – we have launched twelve new crowdfunding campaigns over the past ten days and FundedByMe is the premier destination for growing companies that are in search of funding, fans and marketing exposure!
The year has been a turnaround year for FundedByMe where we have focused on international growth and development of the product, driving sales that will take the company to break-even and future profitability.
We chose FundedByMe because we believe that the platform's global presence and previous rate in creating success stories fits well with our ambition to build a big and successful global brand where we aim to make Droshi the leading brand in drop shipping in Europe.
The extensively prepared Finnish crowdfunding act builds on existing local crowdfunding legislations in the EU and could create a benchmark for future EU crowdfunding regulations. We embrace this new law as it helps set the standard for equity crowdfunding on a global scale.
We have had a lot of feedback from our 78,000 members regarding this first version of the trading platform and will continue fine-tuning the offering to offer a product that will be used and loved by both buyers and sellers.
I am very pleased that such a professional investor like Aggregate chooses to invest in NOA as I have seen how they have contributed to the success of great companies like Mathem, Storytel, Babyshop and others. This investment enables us to increase our growth rate substantially
We’ve been thinking about how to make shopping more innovative, effective and cheaper for people to start a cafe or retail in general.
