Cubex: Unlocking liquidity for shareholders in private companies

Cubex 3

Gone are the days when a successful exit for businesses and investors meant only a blockbuster IPO or acquisition. European business leaders are choosing to stay private, for longer but they still want to reward early investors and key personnel.

Cubex solves this and unlocks much-needed liquidity for people to reinvest in the next generation of high-growth businesses.

Get started on building your portfolio

Crowdcube is built on a vision to make equity investing accessible and rewarding. Now more than ever, as we feel increasingly out of control in so many areas of our lives, the one thing we can influence is our personal finances and how they work for us. Start building your own investment portfolio by supporting the businesses that matter to you, today.

As with all investing, particularly in seed or early-stage businesses, it is important to diversify your portfolio by making a range of investments. This is to help balance the risk of losing capital by investing across sectors and stages.

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

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. Please click here to read the full Risk Warning.
