UnderPinned is live on Crowdcube. Become a part of the future of freelancing.

Words by The UP team

It’s nice to finally say it out loud. Throughout this entire process, one of the most consistent questions members of our community have asked is “how can I invest myself?”

As soon as we realised people weren’t going to stop asking, we knew this was something we had to do. So we talked to some of our great friends at Crowdcube, and the process started in full. 

Honestly, this has been the most fun our team have had since we started UnderPinned almost two years ago. We built a campaign around the idea that we want our users and our community to feel that they aren’t just users, they aren’t just community members, but real parts of our team with a real stake in the future of UnderPinned. 

Through your support, feedback, and care, you have helped us build this company into what it is. Now is your chance to be a part of UnderPinned’s success. 

Today, we went live with £144,040 invested from 66 investors. And it will only take you a couple of minutes to join in. You can invest here on Crowdcube:

The minimum ticket size is £10, and yes, we are EIS eligible. If you’re not sure, and you want to talk to either of us about UnderPinned, our goals, and how we’re changing the business of freelancing forever, schedule a call or just send us an email. We want to talk to everyone we can about investing. 

Thank you to everyone who has invested already. We work for you now. The trust you have placed in us means the world, and we can’t wait to show you what we can do. 🌻

We champion the freelancers and every entrepreneur who took a leap of faith with their idea.

If this sounds like you, head over to our Virtual Office and send us your best work via an UnderPinned Portfolio. We want to hear from you!
