Portuguese Startup CORKBRICK EUROPE announces intentions to open UK branch in 2020
By: Corkbrick Europe
Inspired by Lego and Nature, Corkbrick Europe has developed a modular construction system of blocks made of cork, which can create any type of structure or furniture without the use of tools, screws or glue. The business founded by father/daughter is on a mission to improve people's lives by simplifying the way people create and recreate the spaces they live and work in, with clever, natural and sustainable solutions. It offers a solution to a universal problem – configuration of houses, offices or any space without compromising other future uses.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything Corkbrick Europe does. The team are strong advocates for rethinking and reinventing how we deal with nature and the space we live in, as our current resource wasting practices are unsustainable. They believe there is a need to return to a philosophy creating long lasting objects, using natural materials, that can be reused by and have no harmful consequences to, future generations. In this regard, CORKBRICK has been created as sustainable dynamic solutions to create comfort and happiness whilst preserving and improving our habitat.
The company also today launches its second fundraising round on leading European equity investment platform, Seedrs. Funds raised will go towards increasing production 10 times to 4,000 pieces a day.
Founder and CEO Miguel Reynolds Brandão said: "Despite the UK's impending departure from the EU, the UK market potential for us is to big to ignore, therefore with support of many of our UK, and European, shareholders we look forward to opening our UK subsidiary in the next year and bringing our smart solutions for smart living to the market.
We are delighted to return to Seedrs for the second time to welcome back existing, and attract new, investors who are the best advocates for our brand and the mission we are trying to achieve."
