PERSONAL PROFILE - Justin Grainger
Justin is MD of Bury St Edmunds based CrowdFundMe2 which helps businesses with professional access to crowdfunding for businesses finance and equity. After 25 years of corporate finance experience, Justin set up his own business finance consultancy in 2008, terrible times to coincide with the collapse of the banks ! Bruised, but determined, the consultancy went part-time as he undertook a full-time environmental science degree, to add sustainability services, after which he drew analogies with crowdfunding from his natural ecosystem PhD research at Queen's University Belfast.
Crowdfunding seemed a much healthier and sustainable way to raise finance and CrowdFundMe 2 was born. CFM2 has close contacts with key platforms, finance and equity expertise and a team with social media, digital and building and selling tech businesses experience. CFM2 advises clients from solar farms in Chile (Solar 350), Lord of the Fries UK expansion (Hot Chip) and design solutions for people with tremors (handSteady).
