From Dragons' Den to crowdfunding the next Magic idea

Magic Notebook ™ combines a notebook and a whiteboard to create an erasable and reusable notebook.We are now using Crowdfunding to raise funds for our next stage of growth. We don't like going to the bank! :)

In 2008 Magic Whiteboard www.magicwhiteboard.co.uk raised £100,000 from Dragons' Den investors Theo Paphitis and Deborah Meaden. Magic Whiteboard is now available in 235 Ryman's, Sainsbury's, Viking Direct and 100 Tesco's. Magic Whiteboard is exported to 20 countries, achieving sales of over £4 million.

The simple idea of a portable whiteboard on a roll has become a popular site in offices, schools and at home.

The creators of Magic Whiteboard have now developed a reusable Magic Notebook the notebook that never runs out.


They are now using the crowdfunding site Indiegogo to get investors involved and launch the Magic Notebook to the mass market. Invetsors can contribute as little as £15 to bring this product to market and be part of a national campaign to launch the reusable notebook to millions of customers.

Neil Westwood Managing Director said "6 years ago, funding options were limited, you could either go to the bank or go on Dragons' Den to get funding. We were successful on Dragons' Den and now the goal is to be successful using crowdfunding. We have decided to get more people involved in our business using crowdfunding. This will help our business grow, allow us to diversify the business and employ more people".

The Magic Notebook ™ was inspired by the frustration of wasting paper when taking messages and notes and throwing away lots of sticky notes on a daily basis.

Reusable notebooks are great for writing notes, taking phone messages, generating ideas, playing games, doodling, for writing at school and for doing homework. The Alzheimer's society has also approached us about using the reusable Magic Notebook to help their 100,000 members as a memory aid.
