Hello, all, and welcome to the April edition of Smartlands newsletter – your one and only source for news and updates on all our projects!
In April the team was mainly concentrated on the private stage of the fundraising round Smartlands+Smartee on Seedrs we kicked off earlier on March 25th. We are grateful to our community members, individuals and organisations, who supported us at the private stage and helped us reach over 50% of the initial investment target. This result indicates a genuine interest in our project despite the pandemic and rapid decline in worldwide business activity.
We are happy to inform you that Smartlands+Smartee launched the public stage of a funding round on Seedrs to sell 2.53% of equity stake at a pre-money valuation of £15,400,000. Smartlands will use the capital for expanding the internal engineering team, funding a freemium model for customers in 2020, and obtaining the rest of the necessary licenses to move forward.
All are welcome to review the Smartlands offering and sign up to participate in the public sale: https://www.seedrs.com/smartlands.
Additionally, we are open to direct private placements; interested investors can contact [email protected] to discuss conditions. The offering on Seedrs is a part of our bigger strategy of bringing in investments through the sale of a 12% equity stake, most of which we plan to raise through VC firms.
If you have any questions regarding onboarding or any other issue with the fundraising on Seedrs, please contact us at [email protected]. In the unlikely case, our team is unable to help, Seedrs support will always be ready to step in.
