Visorcat, the innovative safety device for users of full-face visors, is seeking £150,000 investment through the crowdfunding site Angels Den.
The company needs the cash to lower its manufacturing cost and enter new markets.
“We’re looking forward to interacting with the Angels Den investors,” said Jill Boulton, the company’s managing director. “Angels Den has a great reputation for funding innovative products and we hope there will be an appetite for Visorcat. We believe this product has applications in a number of different markets and we need resources to access them.
“Visorcat has proved itself as an important motorcycle safety device because it helps the rider see better through the visor,” said Jill. “It was given the ‘IAMLikes’ accolade for road safety initiatives at launch and has received some excellent testimonials. It is now being tested in even tougher environments and we believe it could have a great future outside motorcycling as well as in it.”
A spokesperson for Angels Den said: “Since 2007, Angels Den has been helping entrepreneurs get funded and has raised over £18m to date. Angels Den is an established angel network with an online equity crowdfunding platform, matching businesses with experienced business people who can provide investment and add value through their wealth of knowledge.”
Angels Den Scotland Regional Manager Raymond McLennan added:“As a biker myself, I could immediately see the potential of this product, not just for motorcyclists but in many other applications. It’s an interesting proposition for our Angel investors and one that I think they will embrace.”
