SmartPlant, the app that allows users to upload their plant collection and receive horticultural care advice has smashed its crowdfunding target by 137%
Supported by TribeFirst - the first dedicated crowdfunding support agency for startups and established brands – Smartplant’s campaign attracted more than 300 investors and raised more than £275k.
One surprise investor came in the form of renowned celebrity gardener, Diarmuid Gavin, recognisable from the BBC’s Gardeners' World and Home Front.
Commenting on the company’s successful raise, George Williams, CEO of SmartPlant said:
“SmartPlant's progress this year has been incredible, with the additional funds the app will be able to scale new heights and provide a service to its new partners and consumers that will transform the world of plant retail”
