What is equity crowdfunding?
Equity crowdfunding is the process whereby people (i.e. the ‘crowd’) invest in an early-stage unlisted company (a company that is not listed on a stock market) in exchange for shares in that company. A shareholder has partial ownership of a company and stands to profit on an Exit Event (i.e. IPO, merger or sale) should the company continue to perform well and increase in value. The opposite is also true, so if the company fails investors can lose some, or all, of their investment.

Crowdcube is a crowdfunding platform that enables start-ups and scale-ups to issue shares to and raise money from a wide range of everyday and experienced investors who want to share in the future of companies they believe in.
Does pre-registering commit me to investing?
Not at all. Pre-registering means you’ll have the exclusive opportunity to invest first when we open privately, as once we’ve reached our maximum target we’ll close the crowdfunding round. If you have already registered interest, make sure you’re signed up to Crowdcube before we go live!
When will the campaign go live?
We’ll be going live with our crowdfunding campaign soon. Once you’ve pre-registered your interest, keep an eye on your inbox for the latest launch date information.
Anyone over the age of 18 from anywhere in the world. However, due to local laws and regulations, retail investors located in the USA, Canada and Japan will not be able to invest in this crowdfund.
What is the share price and valuation?
You can find full details of the raise when we go live on Crowdcube.
You can invest any amount from £10+
What benefits do I get as a shareholder?
Investing in private companies is a long term capital investment that will help us grow the company. A return on investment is typically made via a liquidity event such as an IPO of the company, or if the company is acquired by another company. You can learn more about investor returns on Crowdcube here.
Can I sell or transfer my shares?
You can express your interest in selling your shares in a company via Cubex, which enables you to discover, research, and express an interest in buying or selling shares in private European companies. If enough interest is expressed in a given business, Crowdcube will seek to facilitate a transaction, and you will be notified when a sale goes live.
What happens after I invest?
Once the pitch reaches its target and closes to further funding, the completion process starts. At that point, all investors will receive a copy of the Articles of Association via email and will be informed of the cooling off period. Once the cooling off period, which is generally no less than seven days, has expired, the payment collections process starts and then electronic share certificates are issued.
