- UK based Equity Crowdfunding platform
- Minimum investment £10
- Open to early stage start-ups and SMEs
- Open to all industries
- Accepts projects from EU / EEA
UK based Seedrs launched in 2012 and is the first regulated equity crowdfunding platform in the world and accepts projects from anywhere in the EU/EEA. Each business decides how much money it wants to raise in exchange for a certain percentage of its equity, and each investor’s equity interest will be proportionate to the size of their investment. Investors can invest from a minimum of £10, the maximum investment is up to each individual business…
Seedrs are authorised by The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), providing some financial security for users. The platform is open to early stage and growth focused businesses based in EU or EEA countries as well as Switzerland, and they welcome businesses from all industries. (although businesses that are innovative, entrepreneurial and focused on growth tend to be the most successful in raising funds).
If your aim is to build more of a lifestyle business rather than one that aspires to expand and eventually provide meaningful returns to investors, Seedrs is probably not for you.
There are no limitations on the stage of your business. Many businesses on Seedrs are relatively early stage and have not previously raised external funding.
Seedrs charge a single fee of up to 7.5% of the money they successfully raise. This is all you will ever pay them, there are no hidden costs and charges, and you only pay if your campaign hits its target.
