What is our culture like?

Here are the core team above, although growing at a rate of knots. Just one look at our Facebook page will give you some understanding of what we're like as a team - https://www.facebook.com/crowdcube We're a very tight, yet diverse bunch with a broad variety of interests, many of which have been engaged under the Crowdcube banner. Ranging from the Great West Run and Rock Solid Race through to participating in the Exeter Business Games and Crowdcube Poker Night. Whils the company culture is a relaxed one and the management structure is flat, we are deadly serious about what we do and maintaining our position as the global leader in our sector. From high level strategy through to process enhancements everyone's views are welcomed. To stay at the forefront of innovation it's important we squeeze every inch of creativity out of all of the team and the opportunity to shift the path of this nascent sector motivates us all. A mandatory shout, cheer and celebratory boogie around the office has been known to occur once the good news train hits Crowdcube HQ.

Why are we exciting?

The equity crowdfunding market grew over 550% last year! We are the world leaders in this sector and show no sign of slowing down as the UK's most active seed investor last year. We're heavily featured in the press and TV, and has raised over £24m in investment for more than 120 companies, including £12 million in 2013 and £8 million so far this year, significantly more than any UK or European angel network. We work with celebrity clients including Kevin McCloud from Grand Designs, celebrity chefs Michel Roux Junior and Heston Blumenthal, England Rugby players James Haskell, Charlie Simpson-Daniel, Phil Vickery and Mike Tindall and Olympic cycling heroes the Brownlee brothers to name but a few. However, we also pride ourselves on sourcing and funding the most interesting and exciting new businesses and this is what makes us tick. Escape the City is one of our alumni!!! We were named in the top 20 UK start-ups of 2011, voted the 3rd best financial technology start-up of 2012 and UK Funded Business of the Year, victorious ahead of Y-Plan. Quite simply Crowdcube is on track to becoming the world leading equity crowdfunding brand, with international expansion in multiple global locations underway but we need your help to get there!
