The Top 10 Crowdfunding Raises on Crowdcube

Crowdcube is Leading the Charge on Raising the €5 Million Cap as More Established Companies Pursue Crowdfunding for Growth Capital

Top 10Crowdcube is the largest UK investment crowdfunding platform having raised over £168 million in 412 funding rounds. Active investors now number more than 286,000 individuals with an average investment of about £1900.  Average number of investors per funding round stands at 185. Success rate is currently at 55%.  Crowdcube offers both debt, via mini-bonds, and equity crowdfunding.

While many people associate investment crowdfunding with startups, the efficiency of raising capital online has appealed to a growing audience of SMEs recognizing the power of establishing a committed investor base to fund growth.  Crowdcube estimates that issuing companies have created more than 6800 jobs.

Crowdcube recently stated;

“We are leading a charge to convince the EU to raise its limit on the amount of finance that any business can raise without a prospectus.”

The European Union has proposal to raise the exemptions to €10 million. The European Parliament has proposed raising the cap to €20 million.  When this limit is raised it will allow a much larger audience of SMEs to gain equity and debt capital while providing investment opportunity to a wider audience of smaller investors. The broader policy intent is to drive economic growth.
