Today is a very exciting day for us all at Yapa HQ. We have officially launched our crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs! We aim to raise £50,000 in return for 4.19% equity in the business and now have 60 days to reach our target. We have been overwhelmed at the support so far!
Why did we choose crowdfunding over other methods of raising investment?
An exciting part of raising through a crowd is that you get a whole bunch of fantastic brand ambassadors. We really love the idea that we have the support of so many people, and whether they are investing £10 or £100,000 they are valued as part of our journey.
The crowd truly helps you drive the brand/business forward and it enables anyone to be a part of the business whether they are a regular startup investor or somebody starting out on their investment journey.\

Good mental health is so important for us all. Yapa® is a free social app designed for users to connect and share their feelings with others – any time.
There are no photos, no ‘likes’, or follower counts. Users connect with friends, other users or well-known personalities by sending Yaps dependant on their mood. These can range from depressed or anxious to positive or proud.
Yapa® will be a conduit to promote better mental health. It also has a local help section when users do not feel so good, meaning that professional services are close at hand.
The Duke of Sussex – Prince Harry – has very recently stated the importance of looking after your mental health.
Yapa® is a social app which puts your mental health at its rightly forefront. We believe everyone needs to discuss their feelings more. Our app provides a solution for you to have honest conversions about both mental illness and mental wellness. Yapa – its good to talk.
You can claim back up to 30% of the value of your investment in the form of income tax relief. Therefore if you make an investment of £10,000 you can save £3,000 in income tax.
