Why should I use Seedrs to raise money?
At Seedrs, we pride ourselves on “equity crowdfunding done properly” and aligning our success with the success of funded businesses and their investors.
We offer professional-grade protections to each investor who holds their shares within the Seedrs nominee, and work hard to keep the administrative burden as low as possible for the entrepreneurs we work with. Our nominee structure is useful for both investors and entrepreneurs, as it allows us to put in place and administer contractual protections for investors and means that entrepreneurs will only have to deal with one legal shareholder (instead of potentially hundreds or thousands).
We also ensure that you receive all of the funds committed by investors once you’ve hit at least 100% of your target and your campaign is closed. This is because we are authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to hold client money, so investors deposit funds to pay for their investment into their Seedrs Investment Account prior to the closure of a campaign. Once we’ve successfully completed our legal due diligence, we transfer the whole amount, less our fee, in one payment, so you can get on with growing your business (instead of chasing payment). We also don’t charge anything extra for payment processing.
We believe entrepreneurs know how to run their businesses better than anyone else, so we dont interfere in the day-to-day operations of your company, nor do we take a seat on your board. But we do ask you to provide us with regular updates which we can pass on to your investors, so they know how the business is doing.
Seedrs provides entrepreneurs with access to an international community of active investors, and can work in tandem with angel or venture financing, allowing your business to obtain a diverse range of value added capital.
