Seedrs is an FCA regulated and authorised platform that allows direct, online investment in the equity of seed-stage startups.
Seedrs allows anyone in Europe to invest as little as £10 into seed-stage startup companies online. And, Seedrs makes it possible for entrepreneurs to raise capital for their early-stage business. To date, over 100 campaigns have successfully raised about £1 per month in investment through the platform, with some startups following this by getting accepted into world-class accelerator programmes, and raising follow-on funding from top-tier venture capital firms.
The platform coincides with launch of the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS), which gives investors in eligible seed-stage companies up to 86.5% of their investment back in income and CGT tax reliefs. Most of the UK-based 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; has been selected as one of the 100 most innovative UK companies in the "Smarta 100" Awards in Autumn 2012; and has been named by SVC2UK as one of the Top 100 Businesses in the UK in November 2013.
