UK-based equity crowdfunding platform Crowdcube announced this week that during its seventh birthday celebration, it revealed the winners of its 2017 annual awards. As previously reported, the Crowdcube Annual Awards celebrate the best of British Entrepreneurship, showcasing a range of fantastic companies that hail from a wide range of industries.
“Last year was a record-breaking year for Crowdcube, with 120,000 investments made into 325 pitches, generating £130m of investment. It was very difficult to put together a shortlist of these fantastic businesses, but we managed to narrow it down to 18 companies across six categories, including Funded Business of the Year. Yesterday, we celebrated our 7th birthday, and invited our shareholders and some of the funded businesses to celebrate with us. We reflected on the achievements both Crowdcube and the Funded Club have made over the past year, and were proud to announce the winners of the Crowdcube Annual Awards.”
