Daphne Technology successfully closed its crowdfunding

We're delighted to announce that we have closed our crowdfunding. The response has been phenomenal, and as a result, we exceeded our funding target! We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who chose to invest in Daphne Technology. Your support means a great deal to us.

At the end of April, we launched our crowdfunding campaign via Crowdcube to enable private individuals to invest in one of Europe's most innovative climate tech start-ups. Our crowdfunding is complementary to the €8 million in funding raised from European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and venture capital (first equity round). It is also complementary to our ongoing second equity round. 

We are in the process of raising additional capital through a second equity round to conduct pilot testing with leading shipowners and support our commercial ramp-up. After a few successful years of intensive product development led by our CTO, Dr William Ramsay, Daphne Technology is ready to scale operations and bring its award-winning technology to the global market. 

Our efforts will focus on closing the second equity round and deploying the capital raised through crowdfunding to initiate our growth strategies. 

The crowdfunding press release and the campaign generated significant interest worldwide. In just a few days, eleven leading publications picked up the story.

The capital raised through crowdfunding means a lot to us. It includes investment from our families, friends, and supporters. We are proud that so many people believe in our mission, support our company, and want to join our journey.
