Tech Crunch

“Breedr aims to bring the livestock industry into the digital age”

Tech Crunch

“Breedr is disrupting livestock farming, a $1 trillion market globally that is not often associated with innovation.”

The opportunity

Livestock & Meat production is a $1.7tr industry set to grow 13% by 2030, yet it accounts for an estimated 15% of all global emissions. By combining data, trading & fintech solutions, we've developed a new IndividualAnimal level of production. Using our machine learning algorithms Breedr farmers have the potential to increase their profits, whilst ensuring consistency for retailers & consumers & reduce environmental impact by up to 28% per cow vs. the UK industry average of 5.6tn.

Why we’re raising funds

With 1,000+ farmers actively using our tech & 160k+ cattle already registered on the platform, investment (led by Forward Partners & LocalGlobe) will be used to scale our activities in the UK & internationally.

FAQs

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a way for growing businesses to receive investments from their community.

Rather than rely on traditional financial institutions and investors, we want to be more open. This crowdfund gives you the chance to own shares in Breedr and become an integral part of our story.

Breedr will be listed on Crowdcube, the Europe’s largest online crowdfunding platform.

Do I get shares in the company?

Yes, every investor will receive shares in Breedr Limited.  The number of shares you receive will be proportionate to the amount you invest.  The final number of shares issued depends on the number of investors and amount of money raised. The shares themselves will be held in the Crowdcube Nominee structure which means you, as an investor, will be a beneficial owner of the shares and Crowdcube Nominee will be the shareholder. You can learn more about the Crowdcube Nominee structure by clicking here

When will your crowdfund start?

We will notify anyone who registers their interest before the campaign goes live. Anyone that pre-registered will receive exclusive access to the campaign before it is made public.

How long will the crowdfund last?

The campaign will publically last up to 30 days, ending whenever we reach our investment target. If we reach our target early, we‘ll give notice 24 hours before the round closes. Please note, there is a limited amount of equity available in this round so we encourage you to invest as soon as the round opens.

What will you do with the money?

Having raised £5.2m so far, we are now raising to further develop our software, and scale our operations both domestically and internationally. Please see our business plan on our Crowdcube page when the pitch launches for more details.

What happens if you raise more than your target?

If we are fortunate to raise more than our target, we’ll use the extra investment to grow the company even more quickly than we currently plan. Raising investment above our target simply means we will have more shareholders and be ‘giving away’ a larger percentage of our company.

When will the payment for my investment be taken?

Initially, your investment will be recorded as a pledge, meaning no money will leave your bank account. Following the successful completion of the campaign, Crowdcube will contact you to confirm the date that the money will be deducted from your account. You ‘ll be given a minimum of seven days notice before money is taken from your account. This allows you to make funds available but also gives you a final opportunity to opt-out of the investment.

When will I receive my shares?

Crowdcube will issue statements of ownership after the successful completion of the campaign, once your investment has been processed. Completing the round and necessary paperwork takes a few weeks, but typically you can expect to receive your certificate of beneficial ownership around 4-6 weeks after the campaign has ended.

Can I trade/sell the shares I buy at a later date?

Breedr is a private limited company which means, at present, there is no public forum for buying and selling our shares. Shares may be bought and sold by private arrangement, however, you must first offer them to other shareholders before transferring them to a single third party at your own expense. You can lean more about how to sell your shares here

Are you likely to have a future share buyback scheme?

It’s possible, although no such plans are currently in place. This would be an opportunity for you to sell your shares.

Do you have a business plan?

Yes, our business plan (and financial overview) will be available on our Crowdcube campaign page.  If, after reading it, you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. You’ll find our contact details supplied in the pack – we’re happy to answer all questions or supply any additional information.

How will I make a return on my investment?

It is important to understand that this is a long term investment. The main way that you can make money from your investment is by selling your share for more than you paid for it.

We are a private limited company, and our shares are therefore not publicly traded at present.  In the event of a future sale of the company, you would be able to sell your shares to the acquiring company. Alternatively, if the business grows to a point where the company management/further institutional investors offer to buy back, you are also likely to be able to sell your shares.
