It has been a momentous year for Crowdstacker. We have scooped 4 industry awards, launched our exciting Seedrs equity crowdfunding campaign and now we’ve just hit our £50m milestone of funds raised for British businesses.
Crowdstacker exceeds £50m raised for British businesses.
At Crowdstacker, we are an ISA eligible investment platform that seeks to provide curated investments. We are now celebrating exceeding £50million in funds raised for businesses featured on the platform. This is a great achievement and demonstrates the interest from investors in peer to peer lending and particularly the Innovative Finance ISA account, enabling investors to lend to British businesses and earn potential interest tax free.
100 per cent of funds raised on Crowdstacker come from ‘the crowd’.
And the exciting bit is that 100 per cent of the peer to peer lending funds raised for British businesses through Crowdstacker has come directly from ‘the crowd’. There is no institutional money involved, just simple ‘crowdfunding’ in its most pure form.
Crowdstacker investors have been paid a total of £13.4m in interest and capital repayment so far.
Crowdstacker has made earning interest interesting for our investors so far. And payments have been made to these investors amounting to £13.4m in interest and capital repayment since the first loan launched in the summer of 2015.
As with any investing, capital is at risk when lending to businesses.
Crowdstacker launches Seedrs equity crowdfunding campaign.
We have partnered with equity crowdfunding platform to launch our own equity campaign.
We are really proud of everything we have achieved so far at Crowdstacker. Now we are crowdfunding for our own exciting development and expansion. You can invest in us through Seedrs.
The UK's online alternative finance market has grown from virtually nothing ten years ago to £4.58bn p.a. in 2016. That's a growth of 45% between 2015-2016. With the introduction of the Innovative Finance ISA in April 2016, we expect that this growth will rapidly accelerate.
At Crowdstacker, we are right at the forefront of these important changes happening in financial technology and alternative investing.
Now the next phase of development is about to begin and to support our plans we are looking to raise £800k.
