Seedrs is an FCA regulated and authorised platform that allows direct, online investment in the equity of seed-stage startups.
It opened for business on 6 July 2012 for UK residents to invest as little as £10 into seed-stage startup companies. And, Seedrs allows entrepreneurs to raise up to around £150,000 in capital for their early-stage business. To date, 37 campaigns have successfully raised about £2.1M in investment through the platform, with some startups getting accepted into world-class accelerator programmmes and going on to raise follow on funding from a top-tier VC.
The platform coincides with launch of the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS), which gives investors in eligible seed-stage companies up to 100.5% of their investment back in income and CGT tax reliefs. Most of the startups listed on Seedrs are eligible for the scheme, so investors can easily take advantage of the reliefs.
Seedrs has been named one of “East London’s 20 Hottest Startups” by The Guardian, in July 2012; was Wired’s “Startup of the Week” in August 2012; and has been selected as one of the 100 most innovative UK companies in the “Smarta 100” Awards in Autumn 2012.
