Growth Capital Ventures Announces Collaboration With Crowdcube

Fintech firm Growth Capital Ventures (GCV) announced on Friday it has formed a partnership with Crowdcube to offer a new fundraising model for high-growth businesses. According to the company, this new collaboration with the equity crowdfunding platform will allow it to combine its own expertise, investor network, and access to managed funds with access to Crowdcube’s 440,000 registered members. Speaking about the Crowdcube partnership, GVC Co-founder and CEO Norm Peterson stated:

“Our partnership with Crowdcube is an exciting development for ambitious businesses that need investment for high growth. Now they can benefit from our advice and mentoring, be introduced to our network of professional and retail investors through GrowthFunders, explore the opportunities represented by some of the funds managed by Maven and also gain access to a huge investing public, who will not only be shareholders but also committed brand ambassadors. We are confident that this model will be an attractive fundraising option for many growing businesses.”

Recently, Crowdcube and GCV came together to raise £400,000 for Intelligence Fusion, a software-as-a-service business helps security companies and global businesses manage risk. It has secured more than £160,000 through GrowthFunders, including £100,000 from Durham Country Council’s £20 million Finance Durham fund. It is now using the Crowdcube platform to raise a further £240,000. Peterson added:

“Intelligence Fusion is a good example of what can be achieved by the partnership of GCV and Crowdcube. This has enabled the business to raise the capital it needs for its ambitious plans from a combination of small investors investing as little as £100, professional investors buying several thousand pounds worth of shares to £100,000 from Finance Durham.”
