Another Crowdcube business abandons ship.





AngelBerry Frozen Yogurt raised £200k on Crowdcube in 2014. Now their website is closed and has been for sometime. Accounts were filed late but now they are, they show a company way past the edge. Insolvent is the technical term and this is the second filing showing this. 

The company was due to be making profits of £1.7m in 2016; instead they made a £10k loss. Predcitable? Oh yes, this is Crowdcube, whose own accounts show a £5m plus loss against a predicted £1m plus profit. 

Two tweets since Sept 2016. Only 695 followers. 

Meanwhile no doubt, the successful entrepreneurs portrayed in their Crowdcube pitch have moved onto other ventures. Ryan Pasco, one of the founders, has set up 2 businesses since Angel Berry funded on CC - neither looking good. He is sometimes British and sometimes Australian in the CH filings. His mate James Taylor hasnt been so active - maybe he was actually trying to make Angelberry work?

The business was supposed to be sold this year for over £14m - their figures in the Crowdcube pitch.

Right from the start in 2014, all projections have been way off target.  

As we keep saying - this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to companies that have not closed officially but have died.

We wrote about them before here   - it was a death foretold.
