When an established name takes up crowdfunding, normally the domain of emerging talent to expand their business, you take notice. The designer in question is multi award winning designer Terence Woodgate.

Terence_Woodgate-1

Motivated by the successful launch of his new LED lighting company Terence Woodgate Lighting Limited the designer is looking to secure an investment of £150,000 in return for 17% equity in the business. With over 25 years’ experience of lighting design, Terence has an excellent understanding of the exciting design and production opportunities that this technology presents.

Woodgate comments, “I launched my lighting company because I believed in the huge potential of LED technology, particularly with the increasing digitalisation of our homes, and I saw an opportunity to marry design and technology. The success we’ve enjoyed to date has backed up this belief and we’re now seeking to use equity crowdfunding to raise investment to fuel our growth. Equity crowdfunding offers an exciting and democratic way for anyone to invest and we’re very excited by this chance to share our plans with a new audience.”

The LED bulb uses 90% less energy than the incandescent bulb, which will be phased out by 2020. So there could not be a better time to explore or invest in this area, particularly with the growing interest in energy consumption and climate change.

You are invited to join the company at the RSA on Thursday 20 November at 6.30pm to learn more about Terence Woodgate Lighting Limited and to discover how they plan to use the investment raised to fuel growth.
