Equity Crowdfunding Is A Good Business

The United Kingdom’s equity crowdfunding site Seedrs received a vote of confidence as Woodford Investment Management invested another £4 million bringing its total to £10 million.

Helping people raise equity is turning out to be a good business proposition as Seedrs, the second most popular equity crowdfunding site next to CrowdCube, has “funded over 510 deals with more than £250 million invested into campaigns to date.”

The commissions of 5% on that are about £12.5 million.

Seedrs is “now valued at £40 million on a fully-diluted pre-money basis, which represents a 27.2 per cent increase” over 2015’s valuation.
