BankToTheFuture.com (BF), the UK’s first CrowdFunding platform to combine both CrowdFunding and CrowdInvesting, is holding an official launch party this Thursday November 8th at Cable, London Bridge, London to announce its support of UK innovation and showcase the newest British technology and gadget innovations. BankToTheFuture.com CEO Simon Dixon will welcome 250 inventors, media, SME’s and entrepreneurs to the party, with live music from The Silence - one of the bands signed up to CrowdFund with BF.
CrowdFunding is where inventors and entrepreneurs post pitches for their ideas and products online, via an uploaded video asking for donations to help the project get off the ground. If people like the invention, then investors are able to buy shares in the company online with a minimum investment of £10. This is the first platform that allows people to donate and invest at the same time. CrowdFunding is becoming more and more popular as a way for companies to raise funds. Some of the newest British innovations to CrowdFund, at the same time as offering shares to investors on BankToTheFuture.com, include:
Style Eyes - new patented brand of spectacles
Source Water, the first water bottle and fountain system that gives consumers convenient, hygienic, free access to filtered tap water when they are away from home
Scute Design - Scute's first product is a glove, Twinkling Knuckles, that turns cyclist’s hand into an indicator, clearly showing the cyclist’s intentions to turn left or right
Multicook – a 'green' cooker to save lives
BankToTheFuture.com CEO Simon Dixon said: “When we launched BankToTheFuture.com, the goal was to offer financial support to entrepreneurs and innovators in the most transparent and open way. We also wanted to make it possible for investors to find the inventions that have the most potential, as voted for by ‘the crowd’. By signing up to BankToTheFuture.com, ordinary people can now invest in the country’s future innovations. We are offering a new way to invest small and large sums of money in a way where you can see exactly who it goes to. This event will be a great opportunity to gather inventors, investors and open-minded people in one place to network and share ideas in a fun environment”.
Last month, BankToTheFuture.com won a double Gold Award for British Innovation of the Year for their innovative approach to CrowdFunding.
