Seedrs, part of Republic, has distributed an update that shares information on the recently announced exit opportunity for a company that raised money on the investment crowdfunding platform.
Over time, Seedrs will be judged not just on its ability to enable online capital formation for private firms but for investors to generate a return from their investments. While venture investing tends not to be for risk-averse individuals nor the impatient, backing early-stage firms can generate meaningful returns for individuals willing to shoulder the risk.
As revealed in a notice released last month, OfficeRnD received a strategic investment from Blue Star Innovation Partners (BSIP). The “partnership” with BSIP is expected to enable OfficeRnD to expand its position as a software solution for coworking workspaces and businesses operating in hybrid work environments. BSIP is based in Frisco, Texas, and invests in payments and software firms.
Go back a few years, and in 2025, OfficeRnD raised money via the Pi Labs Accelerator Fund. The fund is described as a “property-innovation” accelerator.
Seedrs states that investors who participated in the fund generated a whopping 60x return on their investment. Seedrs did not provide specific details on what this actually meant for investors, but it appears to be a good exit.
Seedrs added that while 2023 has been a “relatively slow” year for mergers and acquisitions – typically the way most exits are generated, they have seen several other “profitable” exits this past year, including Zypho and Cushon with full exits and Incentive Games backers able to have a profitable secondary exit earlier in the year.
At some point, CI would like to see all active investment crowdfunding platforms create reports that highlight returns based on the vintage of the investment – something Seedrs should be able to excel at due to its active Secondary Market that provides an alternative path to realize gains (or losses) beyond an M&A.
