Sweden-based investment crowdfundin platform FundedByMe messaged its intent to start operations in Southeast Asia with the opening of an office in Singapore several years back. FundedByme became the first European-based platform to receive a license to operate in the region when the Securities Commission Malaysia approved a license for the platform last year. This week FundedByMe launched the first offer in Malaysia and it easily topped its goal in less than two days.
Live now and overfunding, Halal Speed Dating, a matchmaking service for Muslims, intends on building the largest service of its kind targeting the estimated 164 million single Muslims around the world. While the campaign is small, it is interesting to note that almost half (45%) of the investors are from outside Malaysia and 35% are not from Asia.
“FundedByMe is the fastest growing crowdfunding portal in Scandinavia and we are leading in Europe on cross-border investments,” said Daniel Daboczy FundedByMe CEO. “We are proud to see that this global concept with Scandinavian roots can help great campaigns worldwide obtain global deal flow.”
FundedByMe initiated their self-crowdfunding round following the announcement they had received regulatory approval to become a publicly traded company by the Swedish Companies Registry Office.
