Shadow Foundr at 65% of Funding Target

Shadow Foundr is delighted to have already reached 65% of its' funding target of £1m, with more pledges set to come in, following a series of pitches to investment groups throughout the UK and Denmark. This round of growth funding has been extremely well received by investors and the company is now confident of closing off the round next month, due mainly to the upcoming Christmas break.
