Originally we helped get them off the ground and in a position to successfully acquire £500k in investment. It’s beyond that point where our relationship has flourished.
It hasn’t been easy; startups rarely are. But Dare has been a consistent, supportive presence in the LOQBOX journey. Our role, to bolster their team with strategic and digital expertise, has helped LOQBOX grow their audience and their profile.
Dare isn’t an incubator. We don’t even have a formal innovation scheme. But we can, for the right people, deliver more than a project. For some, the ones who speak to us at a visceral level, we’ll find a way to make a partnership work.
In the early days, we made a decision to share some of LOQBOX’s risk because it felt like the right thing to do. In the wake of a partnership with TSB and MoneySavingExpert.com, gold in the Financial Inclusion category at this year’s DigitalAgenda Impact Awards and tens of thousands of people helped in their first year.
"The advantage of working with Dare is their depth of knowledge and understanding. When we were initially selecting a partner we spoke to many agencies and no one else could offer the blend of experience, entrepreneurial mindset and engaged attitude.
There just wasn’t anyone coming close.
Each member of the team has taken the time to understand what we are trying to achieve as a business. That level of interest has led to a truly brilliant partnership.
We are looking forward to a long and exciting partnership with Dare. I don't think it's overstating the point to say we wouldn't be where we are today without them."
