This thread started off as a showcase of upcoming crowdfunding campaigns; we’ve uncovered campaigns such as Bnext, Patch plants and Cowboy long before they were made public, making sure you don’t miss an opportunity, but also giving you time to digest it. This thread has quickly evolved into more than just an ‘upcoming campaigns’ thread, and is now a discussion about all things crowdfunding. For example, this thread has spread news around everything from GoHenry’s 2020 VC round, to Coconut’s user count (16k, at time of writing - Cononut is an accountancy fintech by the way) or business failures.
You’ll find regular updates from me about what’s going on in the crowdfunding sector (including with crowdfunded businesses) - whether it’s upcoming campaigns, research on active campaigns, etc. . As i’ve said throughout this thread, i’m working on a more formal offering - which will start out not disimilar to a (free, ofcourse) newsletter/blog, and expand from there. Stay tuned for updates.
Upcoming Crowdfunding CampaignsI've got a few friends here and there who give me a heads up sometimes. These raises are fairly low on the radar *at the moment* so it's kind of like you're getting first dibs. Thought the community might be interested in these in particular, given the community's fintech enthusiasm:
These campaigns are live, but only to those with the link - they are not yet made public, to give
parties interested in advance an opportunity to participate.
Seedrs One of the world’s largest equity crowdfunding platforms. See the campaign here.
Goodbox provides contactless payment solutions for the charity sector. Their campaign is in very early days, but have a look here.
These companies have announced they will be raising on Crowdcube in the near future, the campaign will launch at a to-be-announced date.
ID finance - Spanish Lendingtech scaleup. One of the top 100 fastest growing (by revenue) companies in Europe, according to the financial times. Raising in a few weeks.
Bnext - Spain’s leading neobank. Recently raised Spain’s largest ever Series A round. (~£20mn) Raising in a few weeks.
There’s a handful more, but thought i’d leave it at the fintech ones for now.
