RGC CAPITAL LTD

Status: Expired

Dec 3rd 2014 - Feb 2nd 2015

If there’s one thing Britain lacks – it’s its own iconic guitar brand.

RGC Capital Ltd is aiming to muscle in on the US-dominated UK guitar market with its new range of British-badged guitars.

The brainchild of experienced accountant Carl Derving, the young, passionate company unveiled its first prototypes in autumn 2014. The flagship Ravenwood guitar and the RGC model gained instant plaudits from some of the company’s 2000+ Facebook fans.

RGC is now in a position to drive the new brand forward and capitalise on market space left open by a dearth of British-badged guitars. The company requires £100,000 investment to fund working capital to grow the business by launching a website, purchasing stock and funding various other marketing activities. In return, 30% equity in the company will be available.

Once investment has been secured, RGC Ltd expects to establish its two core guitar brands within the UK market over the course of the next few years – going on to gain recognition for the British-badged instruments on a global scale within the next 10 years.

Carl has a thorough understanding of the guitar market, having played at an advanced level for 14 years - two years longer, in fact, than he has been a professional accountant.

With the beautifully crafted, custom-built guitars designed, built and ready for production on a large scale, and the brand set to go (including the obligatory Ravenwood hoodies), the company requires equity investment to begin making the brand iconic. Investor rewards include great discounts on some of the pieces - details of which are available in the rewards section on this page.
