Jan 9, 2018 ·


Startup crowdfunding website Seedrs achieved its biggest year to date in 2017, according to new figures.

The London-based firm saw £125m invested across 168 campaigns on its digital platform.

Founded five years ago, Seedrs has now helped entrepreneurs secure more than £300m in investment for 590 campaigns.

The size of the deals completed is also on the up, as 2017 saw 130% more £1m+ campaigns than the previous year.

New records were set. In August, challenger bank Revolut raised its cap of £3.8m, as part of a £50m Series B round led by Index Ventures, from more than 4,200 investors – the highest number of investors involved in a Seedrs campaign to date.
