£2,100 Pledged and $10k backer found in 24 hours!

Tony James @tonycodes

Its been nearly 24 hours since launching my self funding round and the response has been reassuringly positive! This may in part be down to the business being run for over 2 and a half years so confidence is building in me and the platform.

My first backers were customers who have been with me for nearly 2 years so they have been on the journey with me all this time :)

I've also had a potential backer approach me with a $10k offer in return for some kind of equity steak or other deal we can potentially work out.

Looking good so far, i'll keep everyone posted!
