    Crunch are delighted to announce the launch of our first-ever crowdfunding campaign, available now on the investment platform, Seedrs!

    Capital at risk. Approved by Seedrs.

    This campaign not only offers investors and members of our incredible self-employed community a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to invest in our market-leading accounting platform, but it also enables us to accelerate our dynamic and ambitious growth plans.

    We already offer the most value-for-money, online accounting service in the UK, but with your investment, we plan on breaking the mould once again to create a world-beating platform and revolutionise online accounting.

    We'd also like to offer our sincerest thanks to everyone who has invested so far, and shared our Crowdfunding campaign. Thanks to your support, we've raised over £500k of our £600k target with ten days still to go! Here's a word from our CEO, Darren Fell, to commemorate this fantastic milestone!

    Join our crowdfund!

    A brief history of Crunch

    In 2007, entrepreneur Darren Fell had had enough of the many shortfalls of traditional accountancy firms. That’s when he grabbed the bull by the horns and created a fairly priced, all-inclusive service for freelancers, contractors, and small businesses, bringing together easy-to-use online accounting software with in-house support whenever you need it. 

    Our growth since then has been nothing short of phenomenal: many business leaders and investors that have spoken with us over the last decade can’t believe how successful we’ve been! But then again, that’s just how we are here at Crunch: we’ve always been disruptors in the world of self-employed accountancy. We do things differently, we believe in our team, we invest in our software, and we’re not about to stop now.

    Why is Crunch crowdfunding?

    Our crowdfunding campaign offers us the opportunity to fast-track the truly incredible online accounting software and service we provide to the UK’s self-employed community - we already have over 20,000 software users and 10,000 using our combination of software and service. More than that, it gives us the opportunity to offer our entire Crunch community - from our valued clients, to our brilliant and welcoming Crunch Chorus and Community Forum members - the chance to grow with us.

    What will Crunch spend the money on?

    Every penny raised from our crowdfunding campaign will be put back into the software and service we offer here at Crunch. Guided by the latest industry trends and the amazing feedback we receive from our clients, we’re building the accountancy platform of the future.

    What’s in it for me?

    As a client, you’ll benefit from even greater software and service: as an investor, you could stand to make a handsome return. 

    We’re also offering a suite of exclusive investor benefits as a thank-you to everyone who invests in Crunch, such as Crunch Coins that can be spent on Crunch products or in the Crunch community!

    Hear from the man himself!

    Speaking of Darren, here’s what the man himself said about our exciting crowdfunding campaign:

    “Crunch’s growth since 2009 has been nothing short of incredible. I speak to business leaders every single day that can’t quite believe how quickly we’ve grown, or how impressive our in-house accounting platform is. 

    “With this crowdfunding campaign, I firmly believe the stage is set for Crunch to achieve even greater and even faster growth than ever before, accelerating the development of our software and service to create a world-beating accounting platform that truly makes life simpler for the UK’s hard-working self-employed community.”
