Seedrs, a top securities crowdfunding platform owned by Republic, has revealed that it has helped female-founded firms raise £459 million.
When you compare this number to the total amount raised on the platform, Seedrs is clearly generating significant traction in leveling the playing field for access to capital. In total, since its inception, Seedrs has helped to raise around £2.4 billion.
The funding raised for female entrepreneurs includes 237 startups, receiving 167,000 individual investments.
These securities offerings report an 88% funding success rate, with 50 funding rounds raising over £1 million.
Women now make up 30% of Seedrs’ investor base.
Online capital formation is frequently mentioned as a method to provide access to capital for underserved communities. As it is all online, investment crowdfunding does not need to be anchored to a specific geographic location.
Last month, Seedrs highlighted the top ten most successful funding rounds by female founders.
There is an increase in both female founders and female investors across the investment landscape. At Seedrs, we are committed to driving that change forward. Check out our list of the top 10 capital raising campaigns by female founders: https://t.co/vJW8LO76EG#iwd #iwd2023
