You can invest from €5 and up. We have an investment cap and once it is reached nobody else can invest.

One way you can make money from your investment is by selling your shares for more than you paid for it.  Once our company reaches IPO, is bought by a larger company, or the company management buy back equity from investors, at that point, you’ll be able to sell your shares. Depending on growth, dividends paid out by Doggies in Town could be another way for you to make a return on investment.

We will be announcing the raise amount close to the launch of the crowdfunding equity campaign.

Yes, all investors invest based on the same terms & valuation.

Your investment will allow us to accelerate product development and grow our community of dog owners & businesses.

We will be developing several new features for both dog owners and businesses incl.

  • Direct booking system – allowing dog owners to directly book a hotel/accommodation or reserve a restaurant or dog service (veterinarian, groomer, dog walker etc.)
  • Events – allowing dog owners to organize and attend community organized events.

We are going to increase our metrics the coming months, so we will announce the valuation close to the crowdfunding campaign launch.

We will be using one of the best reputed crowdfunding platforms called Crowcube.

Crowdcube is a crowdfunding equity platform. Crowdcube acts as an intermediary between investors and companies. They hold investors’ funds in escrow until the round ends successfully, then transfer equity to the investors by sending a share certificate and the funds raised to the company.

COVID-19 actually created new opportunities for us

  1. Dog ownership has increased due to Covid-19 and demand for dogs soared
  2. There has been a rise in local tourism due to Covis-19, local stores need more local customers to survive and dog owners always go out.
  3. The above two points gave us more opportunity, but we want to make sure to even out the risk, so our sales & marketing efforts are focused on acquiring 50% offline/physical businesses & 50% online businesses.

If you invest in a business on Crowdcube you will become a shareholder in that company. In most cases your shares will be held on for you by Crowdcube Nominees Limited. The amount you invest, and the equity issued/number of shares bought will determine your percentage of ownership in the business. Once your investment has been processed, you will be sent a share certificate.

As a platform approved and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, Crowdcube reviews and approves every pitch on the website to ensure that all the information presented to the crowd is fair, clear and not misleading.

Crowdcube has conducted thorough due diligence in Doggies in Town, its legal structure and directors using leading third-party providers such as Creditsafe, Experian and Onfido. Crowdcube also verifies evidence supporting any claims being made by the business such as market size, contracts and partnerships to ensure the information provided is accurate. The process can take between 3-4 weeks, sometimes longer if the company or raise is complicated.

You will officially be a Doggies in Town shareholder once the round has closed and the cooling-off period is over! When you become a shareholder in Doggies in Town, you will own a piece of our company and are entitled to exclusive investor rewards. If you register your interest now, we’ll let you know when the private launch goes live. You can register here.
