With just over a month left for its crowdfunding, clean tech company Pavegen has already smashed its £750,000 target and hit £1,081,940 pledged from 905 investors on investment platform Crowdcube.
Pavegen is a London-based firm that launched an innovative technology to covert people’s footstep into clean energy.
With over 100 projects across 30 countries and a cumulative revenue of over £2.5 million, Pavegen’s specific tiles have already been placed in various shopping centres, airports and other public spaces.
The company launched a Crowdcube investment round to raise £750,000. Last week, it had already raised more than £705,000 and is now 144% funded – as it has hit a £1,081,940 target for 6.34% equity offered.
Laurence Kemball-Cook, founder and CEO of Pavegen, said in an interview, “As we continue to expand globally and create value for our current shareholders, we will be looking to close a larger venture capital round in the near future. Crowdfunding has enabled us to reach this next stage of growth far quicker than conventional forms of raising finance.”
