Ready to roll

We’ve finished the final set of revisions to our crowdfunding process following the last comments from shareholders and legal advisors. At this point it looks like we’re ready to kick off the whole adventure tomorrow.

One of the world’s top business newspapers has told us they’re running a feature on Trampoline’s crowdfunding process in tomorrow’s edition which is massively exciting. This afternoon they asked us for photos so we had a mad rush to prepare some before their deadline. We made a placard saying “The Crowd is Nigh” and went down into the city where Al snapped me holding it with skyscrapers in the background. But I don’t think the paper liked it very much as they asked us to send something different. Oh well.

It’s been a lot of work getting to this point but now the preparations are complete. None of us can predict exactly what’s going to happen from here on. There’s the same mixture of excitement, anticipation and nerves you feel when you’re about to step out onto a big brightly-lit stage and perform something for the first time.

What do you think?

Crowdfunding is an alternative approach to raising finance. It’s been developed over the last decade, principally in the film and music industries. Unlike traditional models which rely on large contributions one or two institutions crowdfunding is based on raising small sums from many number of people, who are typically linked by social networks or shared interests.
