Last month we launched our crowdfunding campaign with Crowdcube, giving our community the chance to claim their stake in WeAre8, the People’s Platform. Our transformational technology, coupled with unparalleled industry insight from our leadership and media agency partners, sees us uniquely positioned to lead a digital revolution, backed by this latest funding.

We have been truly overwhelmed by the response of our incredible community. Over 1000 of you have joined us on our mission to redirect $100bn away from Facebook and back to causes that can make change. This immense response means that we are now only a few short days away from closing this round of funding, which will conclude at 23.59 on Wednesday 22nd June.

We don’t want you to miss this opportunity to own a piece of WeAre8’s revolutionary technology. Right now you can still take your place alongside our celebrity investors, including Rio Ferdinand and Clare Balding, plus Series B backer Channel 4.

There are a range of exciting investor rewards available, too:

  • £10+ will see 1 meal donated to FareShare to secure food for a family that needs it.
  • An investment of over £80 will get you a branded 8Cap so you can get the #8Family look.
  • Investing £250+ will add a limited edition WeAre8 T-shirt to your merchandise bundle.
  • Pledge £500+ and you can enjoy a full WeAre8 merch pack: our iconic 8Cap plus a limited edition T-shirt and hoodie.
  • Invest over £5,000 and you’ll receive a Manchester United football jersey hand-signed by club legend Rio Ferdinand.
  • Committing £20,000+ will secure you a slot at a special investor dinner alongside Rio Ferdinand.

We are in an incredibly exciting period of growth, with over 4,000 new users downloading WeAre8 every single day following our flagship advertising campaign. And that’s just the beginning. With a newly appointed CEO in Australia, planned expansion into the US and advertiser growth of 900% since February, we are getting ever closer to our goal of uniting 1% of the population.

By investing as little as just £10 right now, you’re committing to change the course we’re on. Visit our Crowdcube page before 23.59 on Wednesday 22nd to join the 8Family. Your investment will see us one step closer to changing the face of digital advertising for good.
