How we work
Phases of a successful project:
We’ll start your project by discussing your fundraising strategy and decide on a sensible timeline for your campaign. We'll support you with the creation of your investor presentation and the preparation of your crowdfunding mailing list.
We will work with you to prepare your financial promotion and script your crowdfunding video. We will also support you with the development of your campaign marketing plan to ensure that you have a clear strategy for getting the most out of multiple marketing channels.
In anticipation to the launch of your campaign, we will refine your marketing efforts and prepare to position and market your live campaign to make sure your chance of success is high.
Throughout the duration of your campaign, we track your campaign performance and remain on hand to support and advise you.
Our project management is split into distinct phases to prepare you for a successful funding campaign. We speak to clients as regularly as is needed and every client is assigned a UK-based point of contact for the duration of our relationship.
If you need a little hands-on extra support once your campaign has launched or is about to launch, we have a range of competitively priced additional services that we can offer.
A more detailed overview of our programme is available here.
Totally free of charge!
We charge a monthly project management fee.
We charge a fixed success fee, which is only paid when your campaign reaches its funding target. The monthly project management fees are then rebated off the final success fee (subject to a maximum rebate).
Don't just take our word for it! Look at all the great testimonials below from just some of our clients.

I joined the ‘Surge’ programme by IdeaSquares and 10 weeks later I was up on Seedrs 100% funded. The IdeaSquares team are pragmatic, action-oriented, delivering output that I would use during the campaign.
I would recommend IdeaSquares to any entrepreneurs considering raising on Seedrs with no caveat.
