Vulpine has ended its crowdfunding campaign two weeks early after doubling its original investment target of £500,000.
In the two weeks of crowd funding there were over 600 investors, investing a total of £1,026,280 for a 17 percent share of the business.
Nick Hussey, founder of Vulpine, said: “We were amazed to reach our target of £500,000 in just five days. The existing shareholders and I made the decision to overfund on Crowdcube and momentum continued to raising over £1 million in two weeks; twice the ask in half the time.”
Vulpine, which was founded in 2012, will use the funding to expand internationally, and to produce a Made in Britain range. The HOY Vulpine collection will also be expanded.
Disappoingly, Hussey stressed: “There will be no fancy offices, gold thrones, or cycling butlers handing out hot towels on staff rides."
