Weedingtech: an environmentally-friendly weedkiller backed by angels

Weedingtech design, develop and manufacture environmentally sustainable alternatives to herbicides. Their key product ‘Foamstream’ controls weeds using a combination of hot water, steam and a natural foam.

Social impact

They offer a viable, organic alternative to herbicides; links between herbicide and contamination of the water tables and medical conditions such as cancer are overwhelming. This technology reduces reliance on herbicides, cleans up water tables and provides a safer environment.

Investment

ClearlySo worked with Weedingtech on a £750k fundraising round in 2014, which took them past their target of £2m investment. Clearly Social Angels put their money behind this green product, joining Abramobvich’s Ervington Investments, Ben Goldsmith and Jon Moulton (with The Guardian featuring their fundraising). They then raised a further round, backed again by the Clearly Social Angels group, in 2015.
