Crowdfunding (Upcoming 2018/19 Round) - Updates


(Jack) #309

I doubt we will know that until the fundraising is announced.


(Bruce) #310

Crowdcube did a good job of shouting about how Monzo chose them for funding during their current raise. Wonder how the timing stacks up between the two raises


(Jolin) #311

The people in your life don’t deserve gifts; you deserve this opportunity. :joy:

If you have kids, tell them it’s character building.


#312

Pretend and tell your kids you are buying Monzo shares for them and their future…

… but secretly keep all the riches to yourself, if they are young they won’t even remember- heck if they are really young buy them a cardboard box, young kids love boxes!!

:flushed:


#314

For non-android gurus - what does this mean?


(Matt C) #315

I’m not an android guru, but it looks like you will be able to invest in Monzo directly very soon. You can select how many shares you want to buy and the money is taken directly from your Monzo account. Someone may be able to expand more on that or correct me!


#316

We will be able to invest directly within the app when the feature gets switched on (in the next app update).


((╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻) #317

There was also references to Crowdcube within the code meaning that it looks likely that they are using them again.

Any news for the crowdfunding ?


(conrad) #320

Sounds like they’re providing an easier and more widespread way for users to crowdfund Monzo (which I’m hoping is the case as I missed out on Crowdcube), whilst additionally testing the waters for an expanded investment marketplace feature for the future.
Would be good to have a fee free investment area within a simple, modern UX, such as what Freetrade are aiming for.
