Frequently asked questions

1. What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a way where several people, often private individuals, make financing possible as a group. Crowdfunding is an option to collect enough money to start and finance a project. The idea is with many small investors, you bring together a starting capital to be able to start or propel a certain project.

In this case it concerns the funding of the growth and impact of Zereau Drinks | KRNWTR+.

3. How does it work with Seedrs?

We work via the Seedrs platform. Founded in 2012, Seedrs is one of the world’s largest crowdfunding platforms from England focused on equities. In addition to investing in regular crowdfunding campaigns, shares can be traded on the secondary market. At Seedrs you actually buy (and trade at certain times) shares of the company.

SEEDRS believes that an investor who invests small amounts of money should have just as much protection and rights as an investor who invests large amounts in companies. It is therefore possible to start as an investor with a small investment. With this, SEEDRS offers an intermediate form between investing in shares, business angel investing or regular crowdfunding.

4. Why Seedrs?

There are not yet many platforms for equity crowdfunding in the Netherlands. Through equity crowdfunding you lock in the money, you do not know if/when you will get your money back, because you cannot just sell the shares. Although Seedrs partly solves this problem with its own Secondary Market within the platform where investors can offer their shares.

5. What type of crowdfunding is offered?

Investing in a Convertible campaign allows you to invest today, with your investment converting into equity in the future, at a discount compared to other investors. This is a very common structure used by angels and VCs all over the world. Convertible campaigns avoid the need to agree a specific valuation on the company and instead offer investors a discount (referred to as the “Discount”).

When the Convertible converts to equity in the future (usually when there is a new round of funding), it will be converted based on the discount to the valuation at the time of the new round of funding, sometimes subject to a maximum valuation (referred to as the “Valuation Cap”).

While this is the standard approach to Convertibles, each one is unique which is why we attach a document to each convertible campaign on SEEDRS outlining exactly what the specific terms are for that particular campaign. We strongly suggest that a potential investor familiarise themselves with this document before deciding to invest.

6. Why do I have to answer so many questions?

Investing in early-stage and other growth-focussed businesses can be very rewarding, but it involves a number of risks and challenges. If you choose to invest in businesses displayed on Seedrs, you need to be aware of and accept five important considerations:

8. Why would I invest?

Do you like the plan Zereau Drinks and KRNWTR+ present? By investing you help make it happen.

By buying shares of this company you help fulfil their mission: the company can continue to build with equity instead of debt and make a difference. If the company grows and increases in value, you have a nice return. Because as a co-owner you share in the future profit and the increase in value. But never invest purely for the return. See what suits you. What excites you and what you believe in.

Do you want to invest in a world without packaging and transport of water and soft drinks? This is your chance to grow with us.

9. What is the minimal amount to invest?

That differs per campaign. At Zereau Drinks you can become a co-owner for as little as €20. There are also investors who invest more. Both are valuable and good. Together we can make it happen.

10. Why a new name Zereau Drinks?

KRNWTR+ has created a new name: Zereau Drinks.
This name is close to us, as we are committed to a movement that goes for #zereauwaste. In the Netherlands, KRNWTR+ and Zereau Drinks will coexist for the time being. For our international activities, we use Zereau Drinks. Zereau Drinks is easier to pronounce and reflects that we are the sustainable alternative for not only water but also soft drinks. We are convinced that this new name will help us on our way to more impact!

Our ambition
KRNWTR+ has grown rapidly and is brimming with ambition. We want to save 30 million bottles by 2030. To realise this impact, more money is simply needed for the production of our taps
