Williams joins investors in Pawprint’s carbon tracker
Gareth Williams: ‘positive difference’
Pawprint, the eco business allowing users to manage their carbon footprint, has attracted investment from an entrepreneur who built one of Scotland’s tech unicorns.
Gareth Williams, co-founder of Skyscanner is among the backers of the Edinburgh company, along with other high profile investors such as Tim Doubleday, chairman of Climate Action Leadership at Business in the Community and group CFO, Burger King UK.
They have helped Pawprint smash through its current crowdfund target, raising over £700,000 from over 420 investors. Earlier backers include Tesla, Spotify and Amazon.
This round of fund raising is hosted by Crowdcube with a target of £400,000, but with another two weeks still to go, the company has already reached 175% of this total. Investments ranging from £10 and £100,000 have been made from a wide range of investors all keen to play a part in building an impactful global business.
Mr Williams said: “A great team and now both a consumer and a business product. Pawprint could make a global positive difference.”
