The Equity Crowdfunding Filter

Equity crowd funding platforms appear to be more discerning about which companies they will list than others.

Kickstarter will list pretty much any creative project that doesn’t violate its guidelines. However, Seedrs in the UK carefully curates its listings.

Due to the increased liability exposure, Seedrs performs due diligence, with only 25% of applicants actually being listed. Of that number, only 12% get funded or only 3% of all who apply. A very sobering statistic.
