Seedrs sent out a note earlier today that June is going to close on a high note. According to the crowdfunding platform;
“June has seen the most funded deals of 2016 with 17 businesses hitting their investment targets. The biggest deal this month was independent brewer of award-winning beers West Berkshire Brewery who raised more than £1.7m from 647 investors.”
Other notable funding rounds that closed include , blow LTD, Pronto and HiyaCar. blow closed at about £1.3 million receiving help from Unilever Ventures that kicked in £500,000. HiyaCar, “the Airbnb for motor vehicles with all insurance barriers overcome”, raised over £210,000 – more than doubling its goal. Pronto is a company that can provide Londoners with the easiest and most affordable quality food on demand in London ( in less than 25 minutes). Pronto raised £838,000 in a convertible offering.
Seedrs is currently preparing for its US launch to offer their services on this side of the Atlantic. Unfortunately for retail investors, they will only be doing Title II, accredited crowdfunding. At least initiatlly.
