Relevant News for Geldvoorelkaar1

Nadat vorige week al bleek dat er fraude was gepleegd bij Trustbuddy, het Zweedse moederbedrijf van het Nederlandse crowdfundplatform Geldvoorelkaar, heeft het onlangs aangetreden management nu faillissement aangevraagd. Dat is voor Geldvoorelkaar-oprichters Martijn van Schelven en Edwin Adams het moment om hun aandelen terug te eisen. Zij zijn naar eigen zeggen ?zeer geschokt? over de affaire. ?Wij verwerpen elke vorm van gedrag dat de integriteit en de goede naam van Geldvoorelkaar.nl dan wel crowdfunding in zijn algemeenheid kan beschadigen.? Trustbuddy nam Geldvoorelkaar een jaar geleden over voor omgerekend 10,6 miljoen euro, waarvan 4 miljoen euro in aandelen Trustbuddy.
