Seedrs has become a go-to platform for other crowdfunding platforms. The growing list includes stalwarts like LandBay and TrillionFund. Now they have added another crowdfunding platform to the ranks of aspiring platforms raising capital on their site; Swiss-Crowd.
Swiss Crowd only recently launched their service from Lugano, Switzerland this past December. Now they are seeking £240,000 for a 10% equity stake in the young firm. Pre-money valuation has been set at £2.16 million The young service has boldly stated it intends on expanding its brand into other countries including the US, Russia, UAE, China and the UK. They already have Italy-Crowd in operation.
We sent a quick note to Mara Liceri, the Public Relations and Business Communication Manager asking a few questions on the funding round;
Crowdfund Insider: How did you come to the valuation of £2.16 million for Swiss-Crowd?
Mara: To date we have agreements, exclusive sales contracts or commissioning crowdfunding for a real estate value of nearly 4 billion euros.
Given the pace with which increases the area of crowdfunding and the potential it has Swiss Crowd SA, our experts and those of Seedrs considered fair assessment of £2.16 million pounds.
Crowdfund Insider: How many deals have you done since Swiss Crowd launched?
Mara: We closed two round, one in Switzerland and one very important in Italy, it is a marina on the value of 18 million Euro. Now we are organizing meetings between investors, the owners of the Marina and their lawyers, to discuss and finally close the deal.
Crowdfund Insider: You intend on launching other sites in other countries. Do you have a timeline for each launch? Will you partner locally or set up operations on your own? Which country is next on the list?
Mara: Yes. The project of Mr. Augusto Vecchi [founder and CEO] is to create an international “crowd network”. These days we are founding a new company in Delaware USA-Crowd.com and then we will launch UAE-Crowd.com in Dubai where we already have representative offices. Of course we are always looking for local partners which can help us to develop our companies.
Crowdfund Insider: How will you use the new funding?
