Plan Bee Picks Up Prestigious PwC Prize!

Warren Bader, June 8, 2014

We have scooped a prestigious Scottish Private Business award from global commercial enterprise giants PwC and have been voted by the jury committee to go forward to the UK final in September 2014 in London.

Plan Bee Ltd CEO Warren Bader said:

“We’re delighted to pick up this accolade from one of the world’s commercial business powerhouses. If PwC don’t know about private business then who does? It would be amazing to take the philosophy of our fledgling Scottish sustainability company to London, particularly in this year of Homecoming, the Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup.”

PwC Private Business Awards - Plan Bee Ltd

Now in their fourth year, the Private Business Awards are sponsored by PwC, in association with HSBC Private Bank and Ford Sinclair Events and are presented to the UK’s most successful private companies, entrepreneurs and management teams.

The awards help to highlight and reward strong, successful growth businesses, the lifeblood of the economy, the sector of jobs and the driver of growth. The awards recognise success and achievement within the vast number of private businesses in the UK.

Plan Bee follow in the auspicious footsteps of Brewdog and Spex.

Warren Bader concluded:

“This has been an extremely challenging, yet rewarding year for Plan Bee Ltd. Last Friday (6th June) also marked the completion of our crowdfunding project and we smashed through the funding ceiling. Successfully achieving this goal is an indicator of the confidence our investors have in the business. We will use this funding to invest in a hundred more hives and employ disadvantaged young people to give them a career they can build on.”

We’ve crossed the £100K mark!

Watch your wallet grow

Warren Bader, June 4, 2014

At the end of the week, what’s left in your wallet / purse? 

Ten pounds, twenty pounds? What will that get you today? Maybe a couple of coffees? A little bit of lunch? Maybe a couple of drinks at the end of the day with some colleagues?

What about investing that ten or twenty pounds that has survived to the end of the week and will either blend with your weekend cash, or dwindle away? What if that investment gave you a share of one of Scotland’s fastest growing sustainability businesses? What if that ten pounds grew into more, and more? And, what if that ten pounds helped you to play a small part in protecting the planet we all share?

Invest in Plan Bee - Traffic Jams - Crowdcube

It’s the very last chance to invest in Plan Bee Ltd’s crowdfunding project. The Crowdcube initiative will close at midnight (Friday 6th June, 2014).

Warren Bader, Plan Bee Ltd’s CEO said:

“Our crowdfunding project has been a roller coaster. At one point it didn’t look like we would ever reach our target, but here we are nearly at the finish line, more than 162% funded. There’s still shares to snap up as we look to make the final few thousand pounds that will take us through the £100,000 barrier.”
