Having founded, and worked for several entrepreneurial businesses, we understand how difficult it can be to raise money to start and grow a small business. The task of securing investment is a notoriously perplexing and sometimes sluggish process that can be a struggle at the best of times. In today’s economic climate this has become even more challenging.
We want to give entrepreneurs the opportunity to take control of raising funding from their own network of friends, family, customers and strangers.
We also want to give people the opportunity to become an armchair Dragon and build their own investment portfolio supporting exciting new British businesses.
We have been successful in raising over £200m for British businesses in the last 5 years with some amazing results. Our largest round has been £8m but we work anywhere from £50k upward.
We launched Crowdcube North based here in Manchester earlier this year and have now funded over £25m of deals in the region.
