As an online equity-based crowdfunding and co-investment platform, we match entrepreneurs, who have great ideas and potential, with investors who are looking to build strong investment portfolios. We also have professional partners who work alongside entrepreneurs to ensure that their businesses are investor-ready.
Raising capital is notoriously challenging, and can be time-consuming for everyone involved. Taking the process online can speed up investment. For the entrepreneur, it means not having to conduct numerous face-to-face pitches. Instead, it?s one pitch to a worldwide audience. For the investor, it means not having to sift through hundreds of investments, trying to sort the wheat from the chaff. We screen beforehand, only taking the businesses with high-growth potential, thereby increasing quality deal flow.

UK based crowdfunding platform GrowthFunders has recently done a site makeover. The investment site has added a bit of polish to their platform as they continue to grow in 2014. But not only have they freshened up the site ? they are now offering up both equity and rewards based offerings.
GrowthFunders is self described equity crowdfunding and co-investment platform offering up listings in unquoted startups and other small businesses. They are regulated by the FCA (under Growth Capital Ventures). GrowthFunders has been a consistent advocate of equity crowdfunding. At the end of 2012 they published a petition demanding that Her Majesty?s Treasury should ?open up investment opportunities to the wider public, give clear guidance on the level of funds private individuals can invest..?.
With an estimated Ł850 million invested annually by Angel investors in the UK ? GrowthFunders see that as great opportunity ? but they also want to assist in growing the number of individuals investing by utilizing the crowdfunding revolution.
