UK-based graphene and CNT supercapacitor developer Zap&Go launched an equity crowdfunding campaign with an aim to raise £2 million. Note that this is an equity campaign - which means that participants will get shares in the company.

The minimum investment is £10,000. This investment opportunity is open to global investors, but UK investors will qualify for the tax breaks provided by the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS). Interested investors should be aware of the risks in investing in a start-up such as Zap&Go of course. For more information please check Zap&Go's campaign page.

Zap&Go recently announced it has been awarded with a $1.6 million USD grant from the European Union to perfect the prototype cordless tools (vacuum cleaners, power drills and others) powered by its fast-charging graphene supercapacitors. The company says that it has received commitments from major OEMs in joint development agreements. We are also familiar with at least one customer, the Razor Scooter which should be out by the end of 2017 powered by Zap&Go's graphene supercapacitors.
