ABOUT THE COMPANY
Investing just got exciting. As the world’s first equity-based crowdfunding platform, Crowdcube enables everyday investors to fund British businesses in return for equity in their company.
And it’s working.
Since February 2011, 42,000 savvy investors have registered with us, helping raise more than £12m for over 60 UK businesses*.
Not only that, but we’re expanding fast. With operations starting in Brazil, Canada, Dubai, Poland and Sweden, the future looks promising.
Our ground breaking model lets entrepreneurs bypass the traditional business angel, venture capital or bank route, giving them more control and access to more investors.
For investors, it means they can now cherry-pick a stake in an innovative business that traditionally would have been restricted to corporate investors.
Get in, before you miss out.
