Social support platform Mifinder has announced its Seedrs crowdfunding campaign. The app connects people with similar life experiences, such as moving to a new country, to reduce isolation and build mutual support. Following a successful round of angel investment, this Seedrs campaign gives members of the public a chance to receive equity investment in the company for as little as £12.
Mifinder is an iOS app that uses instant messaging, GPS and location-based searches to help users meet people who share the same life experiences, also including depression, living with cancer, bereavement and Asperger’s. The team is set for expansion having appointed a new board under Chair Dr Rosalind Bergemann, Chair of Asperger Leaders and NED for Dimensions, a national support service for people with learning disabilities and autism. This round will fund developments to enrich the user experience, develop on new platforms and position the team to produce platforms for private clients.
CEO and Founder Gabriel Saclain said, “At Mifinder we’ve always focused on building communities, so we are very excited to expand our own community of investors. Our platform has the power to help large numbers of people, for example through sharing common experiences, finding out about support projects nearby or forming social groups for migrants. This makes it both a great tool for potential change and an excellent business opportunity.”
He added, “We have already built partnerships with major national charities so we are confident this funding round of £75,000 will give us the means to quickly bring Mifinder to the market and rapidly grow the company.”
