Banks often invest customer money in industries that have little to do with sustainability. The Hamburg company Tomorrow wants to achieve the opposite. Tomorrow could now score with an extremely successful STO.
On October 20th, Tomorrow carried out the most successful Security Token Offering (STO) in the German-speaking area to date
After just five hours, the original investment target of two million euros was not only achieved, but exceeded by 50 percent. Tomorrow was able to raise a total of three million euros in capital. Over 2,000 investors have acquired digitally securitized participation rights in token form at the STO. The Hamburg company announced this on its blog on October 20th.
An investment was possible for private investors from 100 euros. The maximum ticket size for retail investors was 25,000 euros. After Adam Ries, the small investors participated for 1,500 euros. In return, they receive privileges that are usually reserved for institutional investors. In addition to participating in the company’s increase in value and profits, STO investors are also entitled to a piece of the pie in the event that the company is sold or its IPO. In addition to the newly acquired small investors, accredited investors are supporting the company with a further two million euros. The technical implementation of the STO took place via the Wiwin platform.
STO money for sustainable expansion
Over 40,000 customers already use the company’s current account, which calls itself „social business“. Tomorrow has made the connection between mobile banking and sustainability a priority. In contrast to traditional banks, Tomorrow wants to invest customer money exclusively in sustainable projects – investments in the defense industry or coal-fired power plants are therefore taboo for Tomorrow.
The income from the STO will, among other things, flow into a fund made up of sustainable and socially responsible investments. The money will also help Tomorrow to position itself in the European market.
