eMoneyUnion successfully raised £300,000 on equity crowdfunding site Crowdcube and entered into “overfunding” mode. The target was hit earlier today as 103 investors came together to finance this new company. The largest single investment was for £55,050. The amount funded represents 15% equity in the company and is EIS and SEIS qualified.
eMoneyUnion is a peer-to-peer lending company that will provide personal loans to consumers who have been excluded from traditional, mainstream methods of financing. Loans will be made for items such as home improvements and autos.
The company recently made the announcement of adding new board member, David Newns who invested in the company.
“The eMoneyUnion equity crowdfunding process has gone better than we could have ever imagined. Not only are we on track to sail pass the £300,000 target from the crowd plus additional funding from Instiutional Investors, but we have managed to secure David’s valuable time and personal investment. David’s track record speaks for itself with a proven high multiple exit to a FTSE 100 company and in-depth Investment Management experience”
