The European marketplace for shares in private companies

Cubex will give investors the opportunity to tell us which private European businesses they'd like to buy shares in or sell their existing stake, creating liquidity and the chance to realise a return on their investment without having to wait for an IPO or trade sale.

£16m of secondary share sales

Crowdcube has managed secondary share sales for the likes of Revolut and Freetrade, with shareholders having the chance to realise over £16m in returns.

Powered by Cubex, Freetrade shareholders celebrated returns up to 47x (4,670%) in 2021 from a secondary share sale.

Please remember that past performance is not a reliable indicator of future returns and your capital is at risk.

Investors on Crowdcube have already had the chance to buy shares in some of Europe's fastest-growing companies like Revolut, Nutmeg and Cowboy.

Now Cubex, the secondary marketplace, gives people the chance to buy and sell shares in those companies as well as others with amazing communities of customers and users. Businesses like Van Moof, Bulb, Voi or Glovo could give people the chance to invest while offering existing shareholders a way to realise returns.
