Seed funding
made simple

We know what startup life is like, lots to do and just not enough time or resource to do it.

Funding is necessary, but a distraction from day-to-day activities.

That’s where we come in -
we've made seed funding simple.

Rachel Hugh, The Vurger

"Our experience with Crowdcube was extremely positive. Without it, I’m not sure we’d be where we are today.”

Bert Beagley-Brown, TOG Knives

"It was an exciting journey to go on and I learnt a lot. Crowdcube were very professional to work with."

Matt Dyson, Rockit

“Crowdfunding was a win-win, having over 300 brand advocates, as well as the investment, has really made a big difference for us.”
