National Discount Scheme launches Crowdfunding campaign and reaches 94% of target in days of going live
The national discount scheme, My VIP Card, has launched its crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube and has already reached 94% of the £70k target in days of going live. The initial £66k has come from over 150 investors who were quick to capitalise on an opportunity to gains shares in the largest loyalty and discount scheme in the UK in a sector that is extremely buoyant having shown huge growth in the last few years. The national scheme has over 4,500 discounts, vouchers and offers and helps local shoppers save on average £500 a year while supporting their local high street and community. For your opportunity to invest visit My VIP Card’s Crowdcube page.
Many local shops and services have adapted their solutions to offer online, click and collect or takeaway services and My VIP Card offers a ‘one stop shop’ to find all the amazing offers and discounts available in your local community and beyond. The service is also available as an employee benefit for employers to offer their staff aiming to improve their financial mental health whilst supporting the community around them.
In the last 4 years, My VIP Card has won multiple awards including Entrepreneurial Spirit for the South East at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, High Business Growth at the Successful Women Awards, Theo Paphitis SBS and Small Business Saturdays #smallbiz100. The discount scheme’s mission is to get people to shop local wherever they are in the UK using the My VIP Card App.
Maddy Alexander-Grout, founder of My VIP Card, added, “We are delighted our Crowdfunding campaign has been so popular so quickly and would like to thank all our investors so far. With the new investment we can support even more small businesses across the UK and offer our members even more discounts and rewards.
