Crowdcube Celebrates 3rd Birthday & £20 Million in Crowdfunding (Infographic)

Crowdcube Birthday Party Regular SuspectsEverybody loves a party and equity crowdfunding platform Crowdcube celebrated their 3rd birthday last week with a festive gathering at The Light Restaurant & Bar in Shoreditch.  Unfortunately Crowdfund Insider was not able to make it there in person to enjoy the company – but rest assured, we were there in spirit.  Cheers to the team at Crowdcube.

Crowdcube is hitting another mile marker:  Having successfully funded £20,000,000 via their crowdfunding platform (over $33.4 million for us yanks).  Quite a feat having started as a simple idea to transform the funding business for small businesses way back in 2011.

To hit some of the highlights from the Infographic:

    • 103 businesses have been funded
    • Crowdcube lists 61,551 registered investors
    • 54% are 29 to 48 years old
    • 65% are from London
    • Most popular category for investment?  Tech at 71%
    • Smallest investment remains £10 with the single largest at £250,000
    • Tuesday & Wednesday are the most popular days to invest (any theories on that?)
    • Average number of investors per pitch is 86
    • Pitch success rate is 24%
    • Fastest funded was 1.5 days
    • Year over year growth is 562%

So now the only question is – what is next for 2014?
