Business Description

"Crowdcube is the UK's first and leading equity crowdfunding platform. Crowdcube uses the web-based notion of ‘crowdfunding’ where a community of like minded people pool their money and knowledge together to back an idea, business or person.We enable anyone to invest in ambitious businesses they believe in alongside professional and venture capital investors.

Since launching in 2011 we’ve raised over £160m for more than 350 businesses and built a dominant market share of almost 50% of the £245m UK equity crowdfunding market.

Over 285,000 registered members, with 115,000 joining in 2015 alone

Plans to pioneer secondary liquidity and target £5.3bn equity market


INVESTORS IN CROWDCUBE:

Crowdcube has also raised a further £6m of investment to further accelerate its growth. The investment is led by NUMIS, a leading UK stockbroker and corporate advisor. Iconic Silicon Valley investor Tim Draper and venture capital firm DRAPER ESPRIT have also joined this funding round alongside existing backers BALDERTON CAPITAL, one of Europe’s largest venture firms.

Crowdcube is also proud to be backed by more than 570 fantastic private investors who have collectively invested more than £3m across multiple rounds of investment.

Our mission is to make investment easy and rewarding for anyone, anywhere.

We want to dominate the UK equity investment market for private companies, estimated to be worth £5.3bn, and become the partner of choice for investors and ambitious high growth companies.

To achieve this, we’re focused on three key strategies:

1. Provide the crowd with unrivalled investment opportunities. We’ve completed over 400 successful raises (39 over £1m), numerous rounds with leading VCs and delivered the first two successful UK crowdfunding exits.

2. Fund businesses through the World’s largest active investor community. We’ve attracted one of the largest equity investor communities in the world that we forecast to reach c500,000 by 2017.

3. Deliver investor returns. We plan to pioneer secondary liquidity for investors and intensify our focus on attracting later stage businesses that have potential for faster returns.

We’re also planning exciting new software products to enable businesses to manage their investors more efficiently and give investors greater transparency on how their investments are performing."
