Sircles, the social recommendations app designed to revolutionize the way its users discover and share local businesses, is on the cusp of concluding its highly successful crowdfunding campaign on April 19, 2024. The campaign, hosted on Wefunder, has garnered significant attention and support, raising $1.5 million from enthusiastic backers.


Highlights of Sircles’ Crowdfunding Journey:

  • Rapid Succession Funding: Sircles has raised over $5.5 million from multiple rounds of equity crowdfunding by nearly 5,000 investors. This latest campaign marks their third consecutive crowdfunding effort, demonstrating unwavering investor confidence in the platform.
  • User Engagement: Sircles boasts a 300% increase in new users in 30 days and an impressive day 2 retention rate of over 60%, indicating that users find value in the platform and continue to engage with it beyond their initial experience. 

Influential Catalysts in Sircles’ Growth:

  • RAD Radio’s Role: RAD Radio has served as a significant catalyst in Sircles’ initial growth, amplifying its reach and message to a broader audience, thereby contributing to its early success.
  • Celebrity Partnerships: Sircles’ founder, John Worthington and COO, Danny Hinkle, have successfully secured partnerships with notable celebrities including Dale Moss and Jackson Michie, bolstering the platform’s credibility and visibility.
  • Backing by the Maeson Group: The support and backing of the Maeson Group, based out of New York, have been instrumental in providing validation and substantial support to Sircles’ mission and vision, further enhancing its trajectory.

The Problem Sircles Solves:
Traditional online review platforms, such as Yelp, have faced criticism for their biased algorithms, negativity, and unfair treatment of small businesses. Sircles takes a different approach by promoting positivity and trust. Here’s how it works:

  • Recommendations from Friends: Sircles allows users to store their favorite businesses like a digital rolodex. When you recommend a business, it’s publicly displayed for your friends and followers to see. No more negative reviews—just love and positive vibes! 
  • A Safe Space: Unlike other platforms, Sircles intentionally excludes negativity, creating a safe environment for users to explore recommendations, share experiences, and connect with their circle of friends.

Founder’s Vision:
As small business owners themselves, the Sircles team understands the challenges faced by local establishments. They aim to empower businesses while providing users with reliable recommendations from people they trust.
