What is equity crowdfunding?
This form of crowdfunding sees investors contribute a portion of the finance required to get your idea off the ground, in exchange for an agreed amount of equity in the business. Because of the small donations, each investor’s share of equity is small, meaning you do not have to sacrifice more than you are comfortable with.
As a form of democratised investment, equity crowdfunding has seen increasing popularity in recent years. There are multiple crowdfunding platforms where you can pitch for investment: working with Access Commercial Finance lets you tap into our expertise in choosing the perfect platform, and crafting the perfect pitch.
Who is suitable for equity crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding as a whole is well suited to organisations who are at their early stages, or for established organisations who are looking for funding for a new, ring-fenced project. Equity crowdfunding exposes your idea to investors who are usually more business savvy than donors in reward and donation crowdfunding projects, so you need to make sure your pitch reflects this.
