What is Crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a comparatively new and alternative finance option to help new businesses to expand.

By pitching your business idea to thousands of investors through crowdfunders, interested parties will contribute a sum in return for equity in the business.

As opposed to equity finance, crowdfunding sees businesses raise money from several investors rather than individual venture capitalists, which reduces the risk to the investor and could lead to vast sums being raised.

What are the benefits of crowdfunding?

  1. Gain access to funding to help finance your new business idea
  2. Useful alternative to traditional loans and overdrafts, which can be difficult to secure
  3. Limited risk to the investors, as they can contribute as much or as little as they would like
