Avoid!! No alignment of interest between platform and Crowdinvestors. Investors get charged upfront!! Other platforms like Seedrs charge on success and Profit.
Response from Crowdcube: While we would have loved to continue providing a free platform to invest, a small investment fee was introduced at the end of last year to cover some of our costs associated with providing access to investment opportunities on Crowdcube. Following extensive user testing among our investors and a review of the market, we decided that 1.5% which is capped at a maximum of £250, is a more investor friendly approach. We do not charge a carry like some other platforms such as Seedrs which charges investors a fee of 7.5% on any profit made (i.e. in excess of the capital invested).
Great company. Friendly and approachable. Good experience with their Due Diligence and legal processes.
Very good Platform. Good Service. I feel my Investments in good hands. Yes, we can participate on the growth of businesses troughout Crowdcube
The site has the most deals, most active forums and best customer service - one on one support from registration to funding.
I have been using Crowdcube for a while now and I am impressed with the ease of use. They also have a great variety of companies that are funding on their platform. I have been recommending them to family and friends as they cater to everyone with funding as low as £10. It’s great that persons who don’t have a great amount of money to invest can still do so with Crowdcube.
Sorry but too many failures and not enough responsibility by Crowdcube over doing proper due diligence to make any recommendation possible. Fee structure is poor, with upfront charges made reflecting their desire to purely put as many pitches forward and through as possible without care for their customers. Too many cases like Emoov which raised funds and then failed shortly after reflect this and show you cannot trust them as a platform.
crowdfunding for excellence
User-friendly, I can rely on the due diligence they do, quality businesses and transparent.
A great chance to invest in some awesome startups - I particularly love the cleantech businesses trying to help solve some of the major problems we have in the world today.
Really good platform with nice feature such as perks and strong selection of start-ups to invest in.
