17 March 2021 @ 12:00AM Equity Crowdfunding: Case Studies
AI-driven presence detection technology company, Foresense Technologies, has successfully completed its equity crowdfunding offer via OnMarket.
The Company, which provides businesses accurate real-time analysis of foot traffic by integrating in-store digital sensors with leading edge artificial intelligence, successfully raised $657,477 from 228 investors.
The offer got off to a strong start, led by a $250,000 cornerstone investment that generated early momentum in the offer. The announcement of the commencement of the first phase rollout of 10,000 sensors for oOH! Media throughout Australia and New Zealand, coupled with the announcement of a signed agreement with CUED in conjunction with the World Pool-Billiards Association renewed the momentum of the offer in the final weeks. This was most evident in the final week of the offer that saw $145,000 raised.
This has the potential to be a significant future proof partnership that will add great value benefits to oOh!media and our clients…
