Canada’s Equity Crowdfunding Market Takes Tips From The UK

Canada’s Equity Crowdfunding Market Takes Tips From The UK

Humble Grape’s model for raising funds is a perfect case study for what
other small companies should aspire to: establish some clientele, have
revenue flowing, connect with suppliers, and understand why money is
needed to expand. More importantly, founder James Dawson and director
Cameron Gordon were able to convey their passion and experience through a
short 2 minute video pitching their business to interested crowd
investors. James conveys the passion he has for his company which drove
him to deliver the initial shipments of wine on his motorcycle, to now
entertaining impressive clients such as Deutsche Bank. A track record of
success and a passion for the business, greatly differentiated Humble
Grape from other crowdfunding campaigns and allowed them to easily make
their funding goals.
