Crowdcube allows online investing via a crowdfunding platform and helps to raise finances for new businesses. Kevin’s company, Hab Housing was set up with the vision of building beautiful, environmentally-friendly housing, which is also affordable.
Hab housing now has 649 investors, with investments ranging from £100 to £150,000, helping the company to reach its target in only 46 days. Kevin appeared to be very happy with the investments he received and stated “We find it gratifying that so many people have joined Hab’s merry band of shareholders. From day one, Hab has been fuelled by passion, commitment and vision, and although it has felt lonely at times we now feel vindicated and invigorated by the backing of the people who have thrown their encouragement and financial support behind us.’
Kevin’s company Hab Housing stands for Happiness Architecture Beauty and was set up with the idea of showing the public that ‘mass housing could be designed to create beautiful places.’
