CrowdCube Raises £39 Million for Businesses in First Half of 2015

Sugru 1Investment crowdfunding platform Crowdcube has just released their numbers for the first half of 2015 and according to their tally the funding portal has seen £53.5 million invested via their site with £38.9 million raised for a funded business. In 2014 the total amount raised for funded business was £35 million – for the year.  Guess they topped that number.

So far this year, 74 businesses have been funded with a new record for single largest investment in an offer: One investor committed £1 million online to moldable glue company Sugru.  Pretty incredible.

Some other points of note:

  • 31,832 investments were made from January to June 2015.
  • Estimates place the number of jobs created at 2,256
  • Largest funded pitch goes to JustPark at £3.7 million
  • Fastest funded pitch was awarded to The Pressery that took 1 hour and 40 minutes to hit its goal.
