As the world’s first and most successful investment crowdfunding platform, Crowdcube enables entrepreneurs to bypass the traditional business angel, venture capital or bank finance routes, giving them more control and access to more investors. For investors, Crowdcube provides them with a way to cherry-pick a stake in an innovative business that traditionally would have been restricted to corporate investors. In addition, they can benefit from a fixed return per annum by lending money to more established companies via the bond offering on Crowdcube.   Since February 2011, more than 250,000 savvy investors have registered with Crowdcube, helping to raise almost £145 million of equity finance for over 350 raises. It has also enjoyed two exits with Camden Town Brewery (sold to AB InBev) and E-Car Club (sold to Europcar) marking the first exits for crowdfunding investors.
