Shares Proved Hot (or cold..!)
Wow what a week, our campaign was oversubscribed just minutes after going public on Seedrs which was crazy!
At Oppo we love to try and break a record…our campaign is the fastest ever food/ drink start-up to reach its target, the most over-funded campaign Seedrs have hosted and raced into the top five fastest campaigns ever hosted on Seedrs.
The support was incredible and we closed the campaign with 197 individual investors and over £300,000. We decided to go into overfunding so we could give all Oppo fans, customers and consumers the opportunity to invest in Oppo’s future and share in our journey, so welcome on board!
Now the hard work begins and we will use the funds raised to make more ice cream to satisfy order fulfilment, grow the team and further increase brand awareness.
Along the way we received some kind words of support we wanted to share with you…
Jeff Lynn, Chief Executive Officer, Seedrs: “I have been hugely impressed with the Oppo team since the day I met them, and the roaring success of their Seedrs campaign is entirely deserved. This is one of the fastest-moving campaigns we’ve ever had on Seedrs, and I am pleased personally to have been one of the more than 200 investors to participate. It’s been a great honour for Seedrs to have the chance to work with Charlie, Harry and their team, and we are excited about watching their business grow and sharing in their success.”
Richard McGinn, Waitrose Ice Cream Buyer: “Charlie and Harry’s enthusiasm and attention to detail impressed me from their very first pitch. They know their business inside out which is what you need to be a successful brand. Oppo offers our shoppers a point of difference in the frozen aisle. The range is lower in calories than other dairy ice creams, yet still tastes like an indulgent treat.”
