CrowdCube in the U.K.

CrowdCube in the United Kingdom launched in
2010 and finances, on average, $88,000 per

But only 7 percent of the companies seeking
investment are successful.
CircleUp
• CircleUp launched in mid-2012, and has
  already invested $7.5 million in eight deals
  into privately held consumer and retail
  companies. CircleUp, based in San Francisco,
  deals with accredited investors only and that’s
  why it’s able to do equity-based
  crowdfunding.

project spearheaded by real people who ae

• Protect Yourself from Lawsuits

  not you personally in case the business or
  project fails.
