Govox Crowdfunding

Don't invest unless you're prepared to lose all the money you invest. This is a high risk investment and you are unlikely to be protected if something goes wrong. Take 2 mins to learn more.


What is crowdfunding?

We should probably begin by explaining what crowdfunding is in the first place.  And while there other types of crowdfunding available, we are going to be doing this via ‘equity crowdfunding’ route.

This means that by investing in Govox Wellbeing, as part of this campaign, you’ll be directly buying shares in Govox - helping us to raise the funds we need to continue to build and grow the platform and our growing community.

However, on top of helping us to achieve our aims, you’ll officially become a shareholder in the company and therefore, you’ll continue to be part of our continued success going forward!

EIS Tax Relief 2023 – The Ultimate Guide

If you are looking to take advantage of tax efficiency schemes through investment in early-stage businesses, then whether you’re an investor or a founder, The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) could be exactly what you need.

The government scheme was designed to make it more appealing to support exciting UK businesses, by offsetting some of the associated risk through offering tax reliefs to investors who purchase shares in these companies.

Why should I consider investing now?

Govox has seen steady growth since 2021. Our user base consists of over 200 organisations, with a strong 92% renewal rate and 43% of new enquiries converting to sales.

Today we are supporting users in 10 countries and in multiple languages & we are already exploring global expansion opportunities, via well placed conversations with identified partners, in a number of overseas markets, including New Zealand, Australia, the GCC, Spain & South Africa, via what we believe is a low risk reseller model that will be repeatable in all future territories. 

That is a great start, but we believe we have plenty of opportunity ahead, Govox has a huge total addressable market. We calculate this figure to be over £231-million in the UK alone.

Later in 2023 we plan to launch a brand new B2C proposition that will enable anyone to access the Govox support, we will be focusing on key customer segments to ensure current challenges are supported.

Why invest on Seedrs?

There are many benefits of investing on Seedrs, below are seven to help you get started;

Enjoy peace of mind with world-class due diligence

We conduct thorough due diligence on the company that’s raising, its legal structure and its directors before we close an investment. In fact, our investment team performs key checks and searches on every company that raises on the platform, using a combination of public registers, third-party sources and information requested directly from the company. No wonder our due diligence is becoming known as the Seedrs Standard.

  1. Invest on the same terms no matter how much you invest

    On Seedrs, you’ll become a shareholder in a business on exactly the same terms as everyone else – including professional investors such as venture capitalists if they’ve invested in the campaign on Seedrs.

  2. You could maximise UK investors tax reliefs

    If you’re a UK taxpayer, you could take advantage of generous tax reliefs, including up to 50% of the investment cost back in Income Tax Relief if you invest in SEIS eligible shares or 30% in EIS eligible shares. We’ll even take care of your organising your digital tax certificate which will be available to download in your Seedrs account.

    Please note that tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. Seedrs does not provide legal, financial or tax advice of any kind, and nothing in this guide constitutes such advice. If you have any questions with respect to legal, financial or tax matters relevant to your interactions with Seedrs or its affiliates, you should consult a professional adviser.

  3. Enjoy professional protections and warranties

    We enter into a suite of professional contractual protections with each company that raises on Seedrs, including warranties that provide a level of legal protection against a business providing inaccurate information. We also generally ensure that the company’s shareholder agreement contains pre-emption rights on the issue of new shares and investor consent rights over the creation of new classes of shares.

  4. The opportunity to maintain your ownership percentage with pre-emption rights

    If the business you’ve invested in decides to raise further funds, because all investments on Seedrs automatically include pre-emption rights, you may be given the chance to invest your pro-rata amount in that round based on your current shareholding. This gives you the option of maintaining your percentage of ownership of the company – and may help you to maximise your returns if the investment is successful.

  5. Easily manage your portfolio online

    Stay up-to-date with how your portfolio is performing with real-time reporting. Then, if returns are generated, we’ll credit those funds, less our fee (and for publicly listed shares, any broker fee), directly into your Seedrs Investment Account. From there you can re-invest into other businesses on Seedrs or withdraw the funds from your account.

  6. Unparalleled liquidity opportunity on the Seedrs Secondary Market

    The Seedrs Secondary Market is the only fully functioning early-stage equity secondary market in the UK, enabling you to buy and sell the shares of businesses that have raised on Seedrs. This allows you to rebalance your investment portfolio or potentially seek an earlier exit. The Seedrs Secondary Market opens for one week each month.
