With the recent prediction that it’ll have a “record breaking” year, Crowdcube unveiled a new infographic to reflect the key statistics and facts about its investment crowdfunding platform’s growth.
Last week, Crowdcube announced that it is expecting to have an exciting 2015 following the success of Q1 funding. The first quarter saw 36 businesses raising £17.5 million, with total investments topped £24 million (some offers are still crowdfunding). Crowdcube touted some of the high profile successes including; JustPark, which raised £3.7, Pocket and Taylor Street Baristas that went the Mini-bond path.
Luke Lang, co-founder of Crowdcube, shared:
“We’ve had a very busy and very successful first quarter, with over 15,000 individual investments made from our investors. As well as a record amount invested through the site, we’ve attracted more than 31,000 new investors to our investor community, which now stands at over 158,000 people, and raised £17.5 million for British businesses. We’re extremely optimistic that 2015 will be our best year yet, as we see crowdfunding become an increasingly popular options for investors and businesses alike.”
