Luke Lang got his first taste of what it means to be an entrepreneur while working for his brother’s company, Eclipse Internet. Founded in the 1990s, the technology enterprise was one of the first in the UK to really capitalise on the switch from dial-up to broadband internet connections.
“It was an innovative and passionate environment,” says Luke, who joined Eclipse shortly after his post-university travels and became enamoured with the company’s dynamic sense of purpose. “I quickly got a sense of how entrepreneurial you can be within a business.”
As a crowdfunding platform, Crowdcube helps companies to secure funding for growth from a large community of investors. Having experienced a situation where his own business relied on family investments and seed capital, it is no surprise that Luke has become fanatical about seeing others flourish through the cash of investors.
