Seedrs surpasses £1bn in total investments
Seedrs has surpassed £1bn in total investments, which includes tens of millions of pounds in equity fundraising for alternative lenders.
The crowdfunding platform allows all investor types to support innovative and high-growth businesses, including peer-to-peer lending platforms.
Fintech banking service Revolut is the platform’s top performer to date, with £2.8m raised. The second-highest fundraiser is Seedrs at £1m, while P2P lender Assetz Capital is the platform’s third-highest draw, having raised £250,000.
According to Seedrs’ chief executive Jeff Kelisky, the platform reached its £1bn milestone on Christmas Day.
“We passed many milestones in 2020; from having hit 17 company exits to delivering over 27,000 investor exits on our secondary market,” said Kelisky.
“First, we started Seedrs to democratise investment into private growth businesses and this milestone is a clear measure of value put to work for our customers.
“Second, is that this is also a measure of earned trust by both entrepreneurs and investors.
“And third, is that in a year which has proved to be so challenging, personally and professionally for so many, the fact that we can and have succeeded in continuing to grow and serve our customers during this time is immensely rewarding for all of us here.”
