Hello all! Exciting times in the Crowdfunding world. This isn't quite a full update, but I thought I'd quickly share with you some great campaigns that have sprung up since the last update.
COWBOY raise €23m in their series B. This follows a period of growth, and has caused some controversy for being a down-round and not facilitating follow on investment for existing shareholders.
Capitalrise. Invest in posh london properties. Think Fundingcircle(ish), but with loans secured by properties in Kensington. Invest here.
Dozens. A neobank famous for their high interest 'bonds'. Monzo meets Chip I guess. Invest here.
Freetrade have a few shares available ion crowdcube. This follows Robinhood, their (much larger) US equivalent having cancelled launch. Invest here.
What3Words. Precision Googlemaps. This should be a big one: £50m in funding, over 26m downloads, available in nearly 200 countries. Pre-register here.
Much better adventures. Adventure travel; Mr & Mrs Smith meets North face. Pre-register here.
More notable fintechs (sadly confidential, so no public statement)... guesses in the comments
That's all! Stay tuned for a due diligence post on Moneybox! :)
P.S. Anyone as excited for What3words as I am?
