More than 100 new jobs could be created in Cornwall, thanks to people around the world.

Crowdfund Cornwall wants to raise two hundred thousand pounds for new projects in the Duchy.

Internet users will be able to choose which schemes to invest their money in.

Newquay and St Austell MP Stephen Gilbert was at the launch of the scheme.

He said: "Cornwall has a tradition of micro-businesses, one man traders and small and medium-sized enterprises. And we've also got a great tradition of the community rallying round to help good ideas. It's a really innovative approach and I hope it will help deliver much needed new jobs across Cornwall.

"I think their initial target is to get a hundred new businesses up and running. That's at least a hundred new people who will have jobs. I think that is just the tip of the iceberg. I'm quite confident the ingenuity, ideas and inventiveness in our community, lots of entrepreneurs wanting to come forward."
