An all-in-one digital business solution has raised more than £800,000 on Crowdcube.

London-based Cloudworkz is a B2B subscription-based platform that provides SMEs with in-demand human capital, digital marketing and business services. 

Having developed the tech, gone to market and built go-to-market functionality, Cloudworkz is now raising to scale up.

A total of 182 investors raised £839,117 to fund expansion plans – almost £300,000 beyond target – for 2.77% equity in the business at a £30 million pre-money valuation.

Executive chairman Ian Wolter, an experienced chair and non-exec director, said Cloudworkz has the potential to become valued at more than $1 billion.

Wolter spent more than two decades in CEO and board roles at recruitment companies including Eden Brown Built Environment.

“In my career so far, I’ve achieved three successful exits with a total combined value of over £130 million,” he said. “The last two of these were technology-led platform businesses. 

“The reason I’m more excited about Cloudworkz than any of these previous businesses is because it’s eminently scalable. It has plans to be a global business and has real potential to be a unicorn.”

It provides fully-managed and self-managed digital products and services across sales, marketing, creative, content, IT, digital skills, remote work assessments and outstaffing.

“We have concluded field sales pilots & entered the scaleup stage,” it said. “To date, we have a compounded average monthly client acquisition growth rate of 57% with 100+ paying clients.

“The funds raised will allow us to expand sales & develop the customer service function.”
