Frog Bikes is Crowdfunding!

15 February 2023 - News

We’re very excited about launching our first-ever crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs.

 

For the past decade, it’s been our mission to help get more kids on bikes. Now, we want to help more kids enjoy cycling by having greater access to quality bikes globally, as well as making cycling more sustainable for future generations. We plan to accelerate our international growth, elevate our brand and transition to building our bikes with recycled aluminium.

In case you’re not familiar with the term ‘crowdfunding’, here’s a quick Q&A to explain what it’s all about…
 

 

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is generally a term that is used to describe a person or business raising funds from a large number of people (the crowd). As the internet has grown, crowdfunding has become more accessible, allowing people who previously could only reach small networks and raise small amounts to reach much wider audiences and raise much more money.

 

What are the benefits of equity crowdfunding?

There are many types of crowdfunding, at Frog Bikes we are equity crowdfunding via Seedrs

Equity crowdfunding is when a company raises funds from a large number of investors (the crowd) in exchange for equity in that company. For the individual investor, this means that when they invest they become shareholders in the company. You can read lots more about crowdfunding and the different types here >>

 

What is Seedrs?

Seedrs is a crowdfunding platform that offers the chance for lots of different investors to easily invest in start-up businesses on the same terms. All businesses listed on Seedrs go through due diligence checks before a campaign can go live. Seedrs also generally ensure that the company’s shareholder agreement contains pre-emption rights on the issue of new shares and investor consent rights over the creation of new classes of shares.

 

How does the process work?

At first, we will offer everyone the opportunity to register their interest in investing in Frog Bikes. All those that pre-register, will be given the first opportunity to invest and will receive an exclusive email to be invited to invest within 2 weeks of pre-registering.

Seedrs will guide you through the whole process, from pre-registering to making an investment. There is a very helpful authorisation process guide here >>.

 

How much can I invest?

You can invest from as little as £10 and note whether you’d like the investment to be public or anonymous. You will then be presented with an Investment Agreement, which is a standardised agreement between you and Seedrs with respect to your investment. If you’re happy with it, click to accept, and that’s it – you’ve made an investment!

 

What is overfunding?

Businesses must reach their targets on Seedrs within 30 days, and if they do not, all investors receive their money back. However, if a business hits its target before the 30-day period is over, it can accept additional investment – in exchange for additional equity – if it so chooses. This is called overfunding, and investors who invest during the overfunding period do so on the exact same terms as other investors. The one difference in overfunding is that businesses do not have to accept any or all of the funds they raise in their overfunding period. Seedrs will let you know if we have chosen not to accept your overfunding investment via email, and Seedrs will refund your payment to your Investment Account.

 

What are the risks?

Due to the potential for losses, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) considers this investment to be high risk. Take two minutes to learn more here >>
