Crowdcube is the UK's first and leading equity crowdfunding platform. 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 UK market share of almost 50%. Investment is on the basis of the Prospectus, which you should download and read before investing.
Our mission is to make investment easy and rewarding for anyone, anywhere. So far, we've amassed a crowd of over 285,000 people and secured almost 50% of the £245m UK equity crowdfunding market.
We’re not stopping there though. 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.
We’ve achieved great things and have ambitious plans for the future, and we want you to be part of the next, most exciting stage of our growth.
