Why we started Crowdcube
Having founded, and worked for several entrepreneurial businesses we understand how difficult it can be to raise money to start and grow a small business. The task of securing investment is a notoriously perplexing and sometimes sluggish process that can be a struggle at the best of times. In today’s economic climate this has become even more challenging.
We want to give entrepreneurs the opportunity to take control of raising funding from their own network of friends, family, customers and strangers.
We also want to give ordinary people the opportunity to become an armchair Dragon and build their own investment portfolio supporting exciting new British businesses. Crowdcube is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (No. 572026).
Crowdcube - a new way to raise business investment
Founded in 2010, Crowdcube is the next generation of business investment. It is a new way to fund start-ups and business expansion by crowdfunding for equity, giving entrepreneurs a platform to connect with ordinary people and raise venture capital.
By attracting lots of investors who invest smaller amounts of money into a person, company, product or idea you can bypass the traditional ways of raising venture finance.
Crowdcube - a new way to invest
Budding Dragons, family, friends or people with an interest in a business now have an easy way to invest in people and companies that they want to support. People can invest and follow a company's progress and be part of their success.
