Since our launch back in 2012, Seedrs has had the ambition to be the most active pan-European equity crowdfunding platform. And we have been delivering on that ambition every year since, strengthening our offering and expanding the geography of investment activity, and opening our first European office in 2016.
Since then, over €130M have been invested into European startups on Seedrs until now and this number shows a steady upward trend YoY. In the first 6 months of 2021 alone over €22M has been invested into 23 European campaigns on Seedrs, which is already 101% of the total investments raised In 2020 for European businesses on the platform.
To date, we have backed ambitious startups from Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Denmark, France, and many more jurisdictions – with a total of 22 European countries (excl. The UK). Our European track record includes an astounding number of 232 crowdfunding campaigns. Over 29,000 investors have backed those European businesses raising with us.
Additionally, 49 European businesses currently trade on the Secondary Marketplace and over 40% of our investor audience comes from continental Europe.
