Below is the key info about BASE, the investment opportunity and the CrowdCube Platform.
BASE exists for one simple reason; to help people adventure better. And adventure’s moment is now.
Being active in the outdoors is phenomenally beneficial for physical and mental health. Participation in adventure sports is at record levels because more people than ever are realising this and reveling in the benefits. Especially since the pandemic.
We aim to be the world’s #1 media brand for adventure – the only place consumers and brands need to go.
Compared to FY21 we’ve achieved 9x revenue growth & 500% web traffic growth YoY. We’ve built a hungry audience of 15,000 subscribers, distributed over 100,000 magazines in key adventure hubs, brokered 100+ partnerships with brands including Patagonia, The North Face & Land Rover and established a significant global influencer network.
We’d love you to join us on the adventure.

What are our plans for BASE?
Our main aim with this investment round is to build a real commercial function on top of our core foundations; talent networks, brand, team, assets (our website, BASE studio and magazine) and partnerships (both distributors and clients).
So far we have brokered over 100 partnerships, distributed over 100,000 magazines and built an audience of 15,000 subscribers, all with a tiny commercial team. Building this function will fuel direct revenue-driving activity and rapidly increase our growth. Alongside this we will continue to build our global influencer network and our incredible subscriber base, that are at the heart of everything we do.
What is investing?
Investing in a business is when you purchase shares of the company, which means you have a stake in the ownership and future performance of the business. You have then become a shareholder. The percentage of the company that you own depends on how much money you invested.
A company, like BASE, will raise investment in order to secure funds for various purposes, such as expanding the team, developing new products or entering new markets. With the investment, the company can fuel growth and capitalise on opportunities that may otherwise be challenging to pursue with limited resources.
There are some great tax incentives for UK taxpayers when investing in small businesses like BASE. The investment in BASE through Crowdcube is eligible for EIS tax relief, which is explained in detail by this short video.
