Crowdcube Awards to Recognize Best of Crowdfunding from UK Platform

Crowdcube Awards 2013I have my favorites and I know you have yours too.  Crowdcube has helped to raise much needed capital for a diverse, creative and innovative group of companies over 2013.  While you may have already voted by investing in these companies, now is your opportunity to express your opinion as to which crowdfunding campaigns deserve greater recognition.

The UK equity crowdfunding site has announced the Crowdcube Awards to celebrate some of the best of British Entrepreneurship.  All of the companies listed below have been fully funded on their platform.  This is an expansion from last year and the team at Crowdcube will even be holding an awards ceremony in February which will most certainly be a hot ticket.  There is also a new category for 2013, “The People’s Choice Award” –  where you pick the business of the year taken from a list of nominations from all the other awards categories.

Voting is available here.
