Celtic Renewables’ patented low-carbon technology converts unwanted, low-value residues from the whisky industry into high-value, low-carbon sustainable chemicals & biofuels.
Having been previously named the Most Innovative BioTech SME in Europe, Celtic Renewables was on the brink of completing construction of the UK’s first biorefinery and were looking to raise a large round in order to bring their plans to fruition.
The team sought Raising Partners’ support in taking a complex technological innovation and breaking it down to attract investment from across the entire spectrum: from family offices to angel investors to retail investors.
We provided end-to-end support for the entire fundraise from introductions to angel investors to the bespoke curation of the all-important crowdfunding-specific assets, namely the campaign video, investor testimonials, pitch page and investor communications.
We also acted as an ongoing strategic advisor between the platform and the team to ensure the smooth handling of all investment-related processes. E.g. legal documentation, due diligence and completions.
“We worked very closely with the Raising Partners team on a large scale fundraise and accompanying equity crowdfunding campaign.
The team’s knowledge of the processes and strategic guidance was invaluable in helping us achieve a total raise of over £3.7m from almost 2,500 investors. More importantly, they steered us through from beginning to end in a totally professional but engaging way, were proactive and went over and above to ensure the success of the campaign.”
