We welcomed Shadow Foundr into the Freedom Works community back in July 2018. Now that they have settled in we asked Chris Foulerton the Operations Director all about who they are and what they do. Here's what he had to say:

About The Company...

Shadow Foundr is an FCA-regulated, online investment platform that gives everyone the opportunity to invest into exceptional, high growth companies and share in their success. We cater for all types of investors and allow companies the opportunity to raise valuable growth capital in a smart, cost-effective way. Established in August 2015, we have offices in Hove, London and Loughborough University. We don’t favour any sector - just innovative, scalable businesses with the potential for high growth and the potential to disrupt their sector. Our customers are both the businesses we raise for and the investors who are part of our network.

We have a wealth of experience in this sector and have fast become one of the UK’s leading equity funding platforms. We can assist businesses, no matter where they are in their lifecycle and we have an outstanding track record in getting companies “investment ready”. Not only do we allow companies to inexpensively onboard their own potential crowdfunding investors, we can also put opportunities in front of our very own network of active investment angels.

Our proudest achievement to date is raising money for a sustainable project in Africa called Aqua Africa. Within the next 2-5 years we would like to think that our track record in the equity crowdfunding space will be second to none and that will allow us to do more socially impacting projects. Crowdfunding is such an exciting space and it allows groups to come together to make a difference – be that in financing a business opportunity or funding social programs. Ultimately we would like to see the platform used for projects that benefit those in need.

On why they chose to work in the co-working community at Freedom Works...

The very nature of our business is collaborative and we wanted to be amongst other vibrant companies in a collaborative, shared space. Our view is that much can be achieved by working together and being part of a co-working community allows for many networking opportunities which will often lead to mutual business benefits. Freedom Works is a lively and positive working environment with loads of decent people.

About The Team...

We have a number of key sections to the business, so we have team members who are experts in finance, compliance, IT & tech, Investor Relations; biz dev, marketing and operations.

Their Favourite Hangout...
