Why is Fieldsports Channel starting a crowdfunding campaign?
Your investment in Fieldsports Channel will let us expand the subjects we cover in our popular TV shows. This means we can bring in new advertisers and eventually help us launch our programmes in foreign languages. And it is not going to stop us serving up the best hunting, shooting and fishing on TV.
How can I invest in Fieldsports Channel?
We are working with Crowdcube, the leading Crowdfunding platform from the United Kingdom to run our Crowdfunding campaign. To invest, simply create an account at www.crowdcube.com and follow the instructions.
Are there any risks involved?
Investing in startups involves risks, including loss of capital, illiquidity, lack of dividends and dilution, and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio.
What is the minimum investment amount?
Because we want to involve as many people as possible, we keep the minimum investment amount low, around £10 (exact amount depends on exchange rates). We are happy to receive any amount.
What has Fieldsports Channel accomplished so far?
Since our launch in 2009, we have built an audience of nearly 9 million viewers, broadcasting more than 500 episodes of our shows. According to our research, that’s around one-third of all the sport hunters in the Western world. Our films are watched in 155 countries, and the Mandarin version of our show is, according to The Sunday Times, the second most-watched UK-made TV show in China after Downton Abbey.
How can I make money with my investment?
To make a profit on your investment, you will generally need to sell your shares for more than the amount you invested. In a best case scenario, the value of your shares will rise in line with the growth of business you invested in, and you will be able to see your shares when the business floats on a stock exchange or is bought by another company (i.e. an exit event).
What is the money raised used for?
The investment will be used for business development and growth including operating costs and launching new tours across Europe. We are looking to raise £300k, external investors have already invested £36k and the directors have given a loan investment of £50,000.
We look forward to your interest and further questions. Just contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you.
