Tennis champion Andy Murray joined the Advisory Board of Seedrs earlier this year. According to Seedrs, Murray has now shared three companies in which he has invested an undisclosed amount via the equity crowdfunding site.
The three include London-based, healthier eating chain Tossed. The company has now exceeded its £750,000 target, as part of their equity crowdfunding round, and is currently in overfunding. Murray has also made investments in Trillenium, a builder of 3D virtual reality shops, which has been backed by UK success story ASOS and has raised over £225,000 on Seedrs so far; and the Fuel Ventures Fund, founded by entrepreneur Mark Pearson of myvouchercodes.co.uk which raised £549,900 on Seedrs as part of a £30 million venture fund.
Murray said he excited to be investing in “driven entrepreneurs”. “It’s important to me that I back people who I believe have the same dedication, hunger and professional standards as myself and always strive to be their best,” said Murray.
Murray also stated he was looking forward to seeing what the future holds for these businesses and continuing to work closely with Seedrs.
“It’s great to see Andy already taking such an active interest in the businesses on Seedrs,” commented Jeff Lynn, Seedrs CEO. “The fact he has decided to make multiple investments in hungry entrepreneurs shows his commitment to building a dynamic portfolio of early-stage businesses. Andy has already brought a lot of value to the Seedrs Advisory Board over the past few months and we welcome his continued support.”
