About Crowdcube

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 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).

Investing in start-ups and early stage businesses involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of investment and dilution, and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Crowdcube is targeted exclusively at investors who are sufficiently sophisticated to understand these risks and make their own investment decisions. You will only be able to invest via Crowdcube once you are registered as sufficiently sophisticated.
