The Business for Scotland Fast Start to Indyref2 campaign has smashed the target to raise £15,000 for our Scotland the Brief project.
Closed at midnight on Friday April 7, the crowdfunding total stands at £16,176 – and will be matched by business donors taking the amount raised to more than £32k.
The money will go towards funding our research and producing evidence on the economics of independence and our Scotland the Brief project, sharing facts that demonstrate Scotland’s deep economic strengths and the opportunities for sectors, exports and communities through independence.
In addition, the crowdfunder proceeds will enable us to publish far reaching and hard hitting research on the UK’s economic mismanagement of Scotland’s oil wealth.
Since launching the Scotland the Brief project, following the initial success of the crowdfunding campaign, our infographics have been shared more than 14,000 times reaching a social media audience of more than 350,000 views, and brought 110,00 visits to our website in the last month.
Business for Scotland thanks the 347 backers who supported the vital role that we intend to play in an upcoming Scottish referendum. We will help deliver independence for Scotland so that we can create a better, fairer, more sustainable and economically successful nation where prosperity is shared.
