Seedrs is an online platform for investing in startups (sometimes known as "equity crowdfunding"). We let investors invest between £10 and £150,000 in startups they choose through a simple online process, and we allow entrepreneurs to raise up to £150,000 in equity capital seamlessly from friends, family and independent investors. We were the first equity crowdfunding platform in the world to gain regulatory approval, and nine months post-launch we are currently the fastest growing platform of our kind globally. To date we have funded 21 businesses, with over £1 million invested across them. We are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (formerly the Financial Services Authority).
Seedrs has received significant media attention and praise since it launched. The Guardian counts us as one of East London’s hottest 20 tech startups, The Telegraph calls us one of the best crowdfunding sites in Britain; Startups.co.uk ranks us among the top 20 startups in the country; and GQ named our CEO one of Britain’s 100 most influential men in 2013. We are backed by several leading venture capital firms and a number of prominent angel investors.
