For the past few weeks we have been working hard in order to raise awareness about Parkure, interact with and gain support from organisations such as Parkinson’s UK, the Cure Parkinson’s Trust and the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Things have gone well and we are happy to announce that we are ready to raise funding for the company. We are going to do this with an equity crowdfunding campaign in the Autumn of 2014.
When we started Parkure we envisaged that the Parkinson’s disease community will be closely involved in our mission. For that reason we chose to partner with equity crowdfunding platform ShareIn. The main difference of equity crowdfunding is that those who pledge their support will get company shares in return. This way they can be directly involved in the discoveries that come out of Parkure. We also find this the most honest way to deal with what would come out of a potential success supported by the public.
