Well, we’ve done it, and then some!
Earwig Academic has completely smashed its target to raise £140,000 – investment now totals £167,000 and continues to roll in.
The current total of £167,000 for 14% of the company was raised through Crowdcube.com, the website made famous by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Kevin McCloud, who have both successfully raised money in this way for their own ventures.
Since teachers are the ones who will really understand the value of this technology Earwig chose crowdfunding specifically to attract small investments from educators and school staff, so that the future of schools can be determined by educators themselves.
We’re looking forward to a great future!
