    WhiteAlbum Pics

    On January 6th we wrote about WhiteAlbum, our disposable camera app for your phone.

  3. Cabinet Office

    We recently kicked off an exciting new project. It’s a discovery phase with the Open Policy Making team at the Cabinet Office.

    The brief for Mint: Create an Open Policy Making toolkit to help policymakers use the most up to date methods and tools.

    Investing in startups via crowdfunding

    Posted in by Tim Morgan on 03 December 2014

    DeskBeers

    We’re really interested in equity crowd funding. We believe that startups should be an asset class available to all investors large or small.

    That’s why when it came to raising a seed round for DeskBeers we decided to put it on Crowdcube It’s exciting for us to be able to allow people to participate in our venturing and to be able to invest as little as £10.

    You can see the pitch and the details here.
