The heart of a thriving economy
We Are The Million is a new crowdfunding platform for small business owners in London to grow their business and create new job opportunities.
businesses have loyal customers, so what if we asked them to support the business
they love to grow in a different way, and grow enough to create a new job for
someone within their community? This could be anything from a local
Mexican restaurant that needs a new moped to do deliveries or a great local
barber opening a new ladies hair salon. You support them by
funding the campaign, and get a great deal at a fabulous price. Then they can take on new
staff. Win, win, win, right?
Your support could be the catalyst to a new profitable venture for a small business that goes on to create hundreds of jobs over the next few years. Not to mention making your community a more vibrant, exciting place to live. Need proof?
HOW IT WORKS
It’s simple. Campaigns run for 30 days, and payments are only made to the business once the campaign reaches its set target. The business gets in touch with you with the details for redeeming your reward, and you get updates from us on how they used the funding to create jobs.
WHEN DO I GET CHARGED?
We only charge your card if the campaign succeeds. When you pledge to a business, we require you to enter your card information via our payment processor, which creates a 'ticket' (kind of like a pre-order). Only when the campaign is successful is your card charged.
WHEN DO I GET MY REWARD?
When a campaign is successful, the business you supported will contact you directly to arrange your order and delivery if included. The rewards you have purchased may not be immediately available, but the business owners will always inform you of when you are likely to receive your reward. If you are having problems receiving your order, please speak to Sarah@wearethemillion.com
WHAT HAPPENS IF I PLEDGE MONEY BUT THE BUSINESS DOESN'T HIT ITS TARGET?
No funds will be removed from your account unless the business hits its target, at which point your selected account will be charged.
WHAT IF THE BUSINESS FOLDS BEFORE THE TARGET IS MET?
No money will be taken from your account until the business successfully hits its target. If a business closes in the duration of their campaign, their campaign will be closed and no money will be debited.
WHAT IF A BUSINESS FOLDS AFTER THE MONEY HAS BEEN TAKEN?
If unfortunately a business folds after running a successful campaign and you are worried about receiving your reward, please get in touch with us and we will do all we can to ensure you receive your reward or a refund of your pledge. We take this very seriously and will do all we can to help.
