Almost 400 people have signed up to be shareholders in The Big Exchange, the sustainable investment organisation co-founded by The Big Issue, as only days remain on the crowdfunder to take the business further.
The sustainable investment platform has £338,000 in total, more than double its initial target, with applications due to close on Wednesday August 25.
“The Big Exchange crowdfund gives everyone the opportunity to become a shareholder of our business from as little as £10,” said Jill Jackson, chief executive of The Big Exchange. “We reached our initial target of raising £150,000 within 48 hours of launching the campaign and there is still time to get involved.”
The Big Exchange is an online investment platform launched in October 2020 which only lists funds that are proven to be making a positive difference to the planet and its people. It now manages £58 billion worth of assets and offers 46 socio-economic independent funds within its investment portfolio and in June The Big Exchange launched a free app to help people manage their money.
“The crowdfund lets you invest in our actual business,” Jackson continued. “By you making that choice, you will be helping us grow, making it possible for us to reach our goals and ambitions, and you will be joining us as a partner in fulfilling our mission. The more who join, the more positive impact we can make.”
