Crowdcube is an online crowdfunding service that enables individuals to invest or loan small amounts in small companies in return for equity or an annual return. It provides a platform for entrepreneurs of startups and growing businesses to connect with potential investors, using the web-based notion of ‘crowdfunding’ where a community of like-minded people pool their money and knowledge together to back an idea, business or person.
Crowdcube was founded by Luke Lang and Darren Westlake in August 2010 and is based in Spain.
