Laptop comparison start-up raises £60,000 on crowdfunding site

Second crowdfunding investment comes as Swogo earns place in European accelerator programme

Early-stage laptop comparison site Swogo has successfully raised £60,000 through crowdfunding platform Seedrs.

Set to support the team as they further develop their free service, which aims to help consumers to make purchasing decisions, the latest funding follows a £17,500 investment secured through Seedrs last year.

This week Swogo was also selected as one of nine companies to make it through to the European accelerator programme Startupbootcamp, following a two day selection process.

The three to six month programme in Amsterdam will provide the founders with a …15,000 investment, along with free office space and business mentoring and the opportunity to pitch to investors.

Co-founder Lucy Foster commented on their success: “We are very glad to have been chosen.

“In just two days we feel as if we’ve gained so much business insight, and made some incredible connections.

“We want to use this program in order to really accelerate our business, and see Swogo gain traction quickly and cost-effectively.”
