In 2013 Flossonic won Crowdcube's Product of the Year. Along with a whole host of other winners who have departed this world. It also took £126k off Crowdcube punters, claiming SEIS and EIS.
Since then it has done nothing. Flossonic was supposed to be a special electric toothbrush. Well it either never existed or it couldnt be sold as revenues were next to zero for all years since 2013 and now the company has been struck off by CH.
In summary, the 100 plus investors would have been better investing in a new wooden spoon manufacturer.
In 2013, Crowdcube struck a very rich vein with the award winners they selected and PRinged everywhere -

Dont forget these are Crowdcube's award winners; not some dross off the street. Hanging on means just that - not good at all.
26 in total, one sale for small returns. 11 bust but with 13 others heading that way. One doing OK but not close to an exit. Would you invest in these now?
Since 2014 Crowdcube have stopped PRinging their awards. You can see why.
