Clyne’s Butchers of Ringsend, Dublin, has successfully raised €10,000 via crowdfunding to finance a new marketing campaign.
The butcher worked with peer-to-peer crowdfunding company Linked Finance to organise the fundraising, the proceeds of which will be used to promote its newly refurbished store.
Owner Aoife O’Toole said, "Clynes has built up a fine reputation over the years in Ringsend and the Sandymount area, and we’re proud to have the opportunity to continue to build on that legacy.
"It’s a very exciting time for our business and we’re delighted to have raised this second round of funding with Linked Finance in a way that brings so many people on board as partners in our growing success."
Peter O’Mahony, CEO of Linked Finance, commented that peer-to-peer funding is becoming a more attractive option for growing businesses. He explained that, "while banks are the traditional source of funds, businesses need a quicker turnaround and easier process than what the banks usually offer".
"Linked Finance bridges that gap and brings the added advantage of creating a community of active investors in Ireland’s recovery," he added.
