We have now achieved 119 per cent of our original Crowdfunding target, almost three weeks ahead of schedule.
“It’s amazing, we were always very focussed on achieving our target but didn’t expect to reach it quite so quickly. We decided on a more ethical approach to funding our business, selling shares through pioneering crowdfunding site Crowdcube, and it’s certainly paid off. Now we can move forward with our plans to push the business to the next level, fund around a hundred more hives and look to take on more employees.”
“Our philosophy is planet, people, profit. Our main business aim is to help protect the planet we all share, while as a business supporting our employees; and our clients and at the end of the day as a business it is important that we make a profit. Our clients share our philosophy of putting something into the environment up front, rather than simply trying to put something back after you have made an environmental impact.”
Shares in the burgeoning business are still up for grabs, with potential investors able to grab their slice of Plan Bee for as little as £10 per share. The Crowdcube funding page will remain open for a further 17 days (closing 7th June 2014), with numerous options and benefits available for those investing at a variety of different levels.
Plan Bee continues to take the sustainability industry and business start up sector by storm, scooping a number of prestigious awards and gaining nominations in related ceremonies. The company will battle it out with the likes of Virgin Atlantic at the renowned 2degrees environment awards at Wembley later in the summer. This is on top of a top ten finish in the BBC’s Food and Farming awards and success at the Glasgow Business Awards.
