As the world’s first and most successful investment crowdfunding platform, Crowdcube enables entrepreneurs to bypass the traditional business angel, venture capital or bank finance routes, giving them more control and access to more investors. For investors, Crowdcube provides them with a way to cherry-pick a stake in an innovative business that traditionally would have been restricted to corporate investors. In addition, they can now benefit from a fixed return per annum by lending money to more
established companies offering a mini-bond on Crowdcube. Since February 2011, more than 125,000 savvy investors have registered with Crowdcube, helping to raise over £55 million of equity finance for over 190 UK businesses.
