MyMicroInvest, the leading investment crowdfunding platform in Belgium, is hosting a unique event tomorrow where it will “eat its own dogfood”. MyMicroInvest will seek to crowdfund itself to the tune of €1 million – in under one hour. The new capital will be utilized to finance MyMicroInvest’s international expansion and is said to be the largest single amount ever crowdfunded in Belgium.

The event, taking place at the offices of MyMicroInvest in downtown Brussels, is opened to registered investors. As of last count, only a handful of tickets are remaining (unless you are from the press of course).
The live pitch will commence with an update on MyMicroInvest performance, followed by the live pitch and live crowdfunding. The discussion will be moderated by Luc Blyaert, a well-known journalist from De Tijd.
The debt and equity crowdfunding platform has raised almost €15 million for 43 different companies. The platform claims a network of over 31,000 members. The Belgian investment crowdfunding market is estimated to be worth €5 to 6 million annually, of which 40% was raised through MyMicroInvest. The company currently employs 24 people and is preparing to expand into five new countries including; Netherlands, France, Italy, Switzerland and Poland. The company has already raised €3 million for the expansion so the crowdfunding offer is icing on the cake. More information on the company is available here.
If you are interested in viewing the proceedings, no need to head over to Brussels as MyMicroInvest is live-streaming the event at 6PM CET tomorrow (January 20th).
