CEO Chris North said: âWe have proven our platform and recruited 44 top-quality investors from the gambling industry including big names such as Simon Collins, Brian Mattingley, Ebbe Groes, Mark Blandford, Tom Hall, Melissa Blau, John Kinder, Matt Davey and many others. We are now getting ready to put some exciting startups live on the site and helping them to raise funds for their business.â
The minimum investment for the crowdfunding round is Â£500 and the extra funds raised are set to be used to bolster the company's marketing budget and support future startups via the platform.
