Sourdough Sophia - funded privately via SeedLegals & Odin
"It was such a pleasure working with Steph and the team. I’ve had fantastic support, advice and even when my course of action changed they were able to help me navigate through any challenges so well that we exceeded our expectations. Fantastic course, fantastic service and a passionate team who clearly know what they’re doing. Highly recommended."

“ISQ were invaluable to the team and our campaign; from the clearly explained videos, modules and templates for the months leading up to the campaign to navigating through the live campaign itself and then onto closing the round.
It truly felt that you had someone in your corner, riding the emotional rollercoaster of crowdfunding with you. The 1:1 support you get whenever you need it and however many times you need it was golden. Richard has been a blessing, with his previous experience in business banking and the many crowdfunding campaigns he has supported. He was very much our go-to, and there was someone available at all times even 11pm at night!
They truly understand that campaign tasks are done on top of the daily business work and guide you through in a really supportive manner.”

“I don’t think we could have done our crowdfund without ISQ. They coached us through every step of the way, giving really useful and practical advice on how we could get the most out of our crowdfund.
The downloadable guides are super useful for you to work through and ensure nothing gets missed in your approach, as well as for sharing with the wider team who might be supporting you.
Whilst the programme is online, there’s also a really nice personal element to working with their team, meaning you can ask questions and get feedback from real people, in real-time. Which is so important and also, really helps put you at ease through the process.
The team are very knowledgeable and it’s no surprise to me that the campaigns they support on have a high success rate. I can’t recommend them enough. Their fees are really reasonable for the amount of support you get too.”
Let's Go See - overfunded by 101% via Seedrs
"This was our second funding round and our first using a crowdfunding platform. As crowdfunding newbies, we had a lot to learn and having considered the pros and cons, we decided to engage the help of ISQ.
Naively we assumed that we could just set up a pitch on the host site and then count the money as it came flying in!
The truth however is a crowdfunding campaign needs planning, a lot of planning. You have one shot to get it right. If you don’t meet your target, you get absolutely nothing.
ISQ has ‘been there and done it’ and provides a structured learning process that guides you through the crowdfunding process.
Each phase of the ISQ process is monitored by their expert team and you can’t move forward until that phase has been successfully completed. This mentoring ensures that you don’t make any silly, costly mistakes or fall into one of the many pitfalls.
If you are considering crowdfunding, I’d strongly recommend that you talk to the team at ISQ. As well as being experts in their field, they’re also lovely, caring people who really want you to succeed."
Cosimo Art - raised £130K via Seedrs
“As a sole founder you know, first-time founder, I had to do a lot of learning through this process, but that was really expedited, I think, by the support I had from ISQ throughout. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the framework and support from ISQ, they've been fundamental in helping us get through this process.”
Collabed - overfunded by 130% via Seedrs
"ISQ are the crowdfunding experts, they helped us get the most out of our campaign and assisted Collabed every step of the way. Their programme is well organised and in-depth, allowing you to gather all the information you need. Their spreadsheets and templates helped us organise the entire campaign. We would highly recommend anyone thinking about crowdfunding to work with ISQ."
Famli - overfunded by 205% via Seedrs
"We didn't know where to start and were quite uncertain in our ability to run a successful crowdfunding campaign due to our lack of experience in this domain. ISQ has a proven process, combined with a very competent and experienced team, which meant that no matter the situation, we had the support we needed to ensure our campaign was successful. This ultimately led us to exceed our goal significantly and reach 205% overfunded, which we would have definitely not been able to achieve without them."
eargym - overfunded by 143% via Crowdcube
"As a cash-strapped start-up, the decision to engage ISQ to support our crowdfunding raise was carefully thought through and is probably the best investment we could have made. We followed the ISQ process rigorously, made sure all of our team watched every video and we went through every exercise in detail. We learnt a lot, and it stopped us taking shortcuts that would I think have led us to fail. So definitely worthwhile. We'd recommend ISQ to anyone about to start preparing for a crowdfunding campaign."
Fox Cycling - overfunded by 118% via Crowdcube
"10/10 for support, content, advice, guidance, and motivation. If you feel you need someone to ‘hold your hand’ as you journey through a crowd funding process, ISQ ticks that box. Very detailed online learning process, supportive staff and a no-nonsense approach. If you follow their process, you will be successful."
Straight & Narrow - overfunded via Seedrs
"I didn’t realise how difficult and time-consuming a crowdfunding campaign would be. Thankfully I engaged the services of ISQ from the start and on reflection, I am convinced that the campaign would not have been as successful without their direction and support. The team were always on hand to give professional feedback on any content in a clear concise professional manner. A great example of teamwork."
When In Rome - overfunded via Crowdcube
"ISQ has a very organised, schematic, easy-to-follow system for making sure your crowdfunding campaign is a success. With a load of insights that I would not have realised at all, even though I spoke to a lot of people that crowdfunded already. So it's a really worthwhile programme. I couldn't recommend it anymore."
2iC Care - funded privately
"I would like to thank the ISQ team for all your help and getting us to this point. I am sure we wouldn’t be where we are without you."
dooo - overfunded by 130% via Crowdcube
"ISQ are a great team, very warm and welcoming. They go out of their way to help you, all the way through the programme right up to the end where you've successfully funded. I definitely would recommend, as I wouldn’t have got to this stage without them. I can now fully develop and launch my app!"
Peters' Cleaners - overfunded via Seedrs
"Wow, its safe to say the guys at ISQ are experts in preparing you for crowdfunding and guiding you through the trials and tribulations of not only getting to go-live but reaching you full potential once on the platform. Richard and his team set us up with a framework steeped in experience from successful campaigns, held us to account on delivering prior to go-live and supported us every step of the way. If you're considering crowdfunding, you need ISQ."
Voyager - overfunded by 426% via Seedrs
"Within 10 minutes of speaking with ISQ I was absolutely convinced that we needed them to support us. As the process went on, I realised just how invaluable their support was. ISQ's well thought out and easy to navigate programme for their customers takes you through the build-up to crowdfunding in a logical and convenient way. I have absolutely no doubt that our crowdfunding campaign would have been neither as efficient nor as successful without ISQ's help."
CarCloud - overfunded by 150% via Seedrs
"The ISQ blend of experience, structure and support created the platform for our Seedrs campaign to fund in 48 hours before going on to overfund at 150%. I would strongly recommend anyone who is considering crowdfunding to get in touch with the ISQ team for an initial chat"
Orbital Machines - overfunded by 178% via Seedrs
"We would absolutely recommend ISQ to other companies looking for funding. The adaptable "How to crowdfund" methodology is crucial for any company, even for us with previous experience from crowdfunding rounds in the past. We learned a lot which was crucial for our round and why we feel we reached over half a million euros on Seedrs!"
savvy navvy - overfunded by 153% via Seedrs
"We were very fortunate to be put in touch with ISQ when we did our first round last year. They were instrumental to our success and generally a blast to work with. So we’ve continued to rely on them in this second round. The public-facing side of a crowdfunding round is really only the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot of work that goes into the preparation of a campaign, and having someone like ISQ has been really helpful to just keep us on track on what needs to happen when."
Dabbl - overfunded by 198% via Seedrs
"The team at ISQ have been nothing short of revolutionary. They got us from a standing start to a 230% funded crowdfund campaign in just over 7 weeks. We would never have been able to achieve such success without their strategy, planning, coaching, support and advice."
Save Your Wardrobe - private campaign on Seedrs
"The ISQ team really helped us increase our chances of success for our first equity crowdfunding campaign. We felt organised and well prepared for all the key activities and steps required for such a complex and important funding campaign for our business."

Glovebox Direct - funded in less than 72 hours via Crowdcube
"The ISQ team added very significant value to our extremely successful Crowdcube raise. They provided structure, wise guidance founded on experience, and have a lovely coaching style that you welcome during the process. If you’re crowdfunding and want to increase the probability of success, reduce and the complexity and stress, get ISQ involved."
Hügge - overfunded in under a week via Seedrs
"I joined the programme and 10 weeks later I was up on Seedrs 100% funded. The ISQ team are pragmatic, action-oriented, delivering output that I would use during the campaign. I would recommend ISQ to any entrepreneurs considering raising on Seedrs with no caveat."
