The AllBright platform with its three female founders  emerged to address the funding gap that currently exists between male and female-led companies and aims to unearth, fund and support outstanding female talent in the UK.

AllBright’s unique platform combines an angel network with a crowdfunding platform. Investors can register to become a ‘Crowd Investor’ and invest as little as £100, or apply to become an ‘AllBright Angel’. AllBright Angel’s offerings have a minimum £1,000 commitment per deal.

The platform launched this week with three campaigns and investors are invited to register their interest before the campaigns start accepting investments.

  • Fluidly is a new startup helping SMEs avoid the pain of getting invoices paid. It's on a mission to eradicate late payments and give SMEs complete cashflow confidence. Founded by serial entrepreneur, Caroline Plumb OBE.
  • Piccolo is a baby food brand with a mission to encourage healthy eating from a young age. Piccolo was founded in early 2016 by Catherine Gazzoli.
  • Juggle Jobs is a software-as-a-service platform which identifies, and manages high-quality female professionals into businesses on a flexible basis. The business was launched in early 2016 by Romanie Thomas,

The platform charges no upfront fees and takes a fee of 7.5 per cent of realised profits.

The duo behind the venture is Debbie Wosskow, the CEO of home sharing platform Love Home Swap, and Anna Jones, the former CEO of publisher Hearst Magazines UK.
