Ineed calls it a day and reveals its all down to Facebook!
INeed has raised money on Crowdcube FOUR times. Now, with its story wearing a little thin to raise more, it is closing its doors. INeed was one of Crowdcube's early successes - although it never got close to its fantasy projections for any of its 4 pitches....

Justpark continues to get appalling customer service reviews
We have mentioned this several times - Justpark's customer service stinks. Take the month of December and up to now on Trust Pilot. 18 reviews. 6 of these are 1 star and 1 is 3 star. The rest are 5 star. You cant go lower than 1 star but all of these sound ...

Fact Not Fantasy Research to Follow - register now.
Well into 2017 and we are very busy working on a review of where the companies are that have funded via equity crowdfunding since 2011 - mainly the ones on Crowdcube. This is a long and often quite tedious job but we want to be accurate so we are double che...

When is legal action a good idea?
This doesnt happen very often - in fact this is the first time in over 500 articles that we have removed one completely. Threats of legal whilst clearly childish, are to be weighed in the grand scheme of things and if a company is so small and insignificant...

New Year brings Crowdcube investors in Airlander to the ground with a heavy bump - no parachutes issued.
Airlander - the new/old Zeppelin idea  - has had to reduce its share 'value' by 60% to gain more, much needed funding. Leaving Crowdcube investors with large potential losses. Airlander has always talked a great game - big numbers, massive enthusiasm and gl...

Angelberry aims high and shoots low - like most Crowdcube successes
This is now the new norm - fantastical projections met head on by sober realities for Crowdcube investors. This company raised £200k on Crowdcube in 2014. Its still functioning but has failed to get anywhere near to the revenues and profits its fantasy proj...

My Mate your Date gone walkabout and returns as Quinn the App.
My Mate Your Date, an Australian duos idea (where else would come up with such a crass name) has gone dark but shareholders via Crowdcube now have a new App version named 'Quinn'. In one of Crowdcube;s more amusing disasters, MMYD funded not once but twice ...

Crowdcube themselves prove that theydo not bother to check facts and figures
If you dont believe us when we say Crowdcube are slapdash about the figures they promote for their pitches - then here is the evidence. A new pitch on the platform Ridewithlocal proves that Crowdcube's systems are well below where you would expect a FCA acc...

Hybrid Air make it up as they go along - and Crowdcube investors pay the price.
Following our recent revelations about the Hybrid Air share value crash, we have further evidence that the company has been grossly abusing its trusting Crowdcube investors. As if it wasnt bad enough to see the value of your holding in this company more tha...

Nameless mobility scooter company misses targets on Crowdcube
This is classic Crowdcube. XXXXXXXX, an upright disability scooter manufacturer, raised £207k from investors on Crowdcube in 2014.  We recently had an email from them demanding references to the company be removed - so they have been in the spirit of Goodwi...

More sticky business for equity crowdfunding
Sugru's recently published accounts show why we need to change the way company accounts are filed. Sugru raised almost £3.4m on Crowdcube last year.  More recently they tried to raised more equity funding via the Envestors platform.  The problem here is tha...
