What entrepreneurs are saying about Seedrs
“As a company with a strong community following, it was difficult for us to trust an external brand with our reputation. However, from start to finish, Seedrs treated our company as if it were their own and took away the burden that comes with raising large sums of money from a large number of investors. With the guidance and support of Seedrs, Revolut was able to conclude another record-breaking campaign.”
Nikolay Storonsky, Founder & CEO at Revolut
“We have always maintained the key reason for going to ‘the crowd’ is beyond the money. Seedrs enabled us to build a community of over 1,000 advocates, and helped us raise £500k in our first round and £1m in the second. In our last raise, we reached our funding target in just 2 days, with Seedrs providing great support throughout which felt like an extension of our own team.”
Niall Barton and Darius Kumana, Co-founders of Wrisk
“Since raising £650,000 on Seedrs, Miso Tasty has launched into over 700 Tesco stores across the UK. Our mission is to become the leading Japanese-inspired meal and snack brand, and we’re thrilled to have 600 Seedrs investors on the journey with us. The support from investors and the Seedrs team post-raise has been brilliant in helping us grow our brand as we look to scale nationally and beyond.”
Bonnie Chung, Founder of Miso Tasty

What investors are saying about Seedrs
"Investing in startups on Seedrs is easy because they take care of all the administration and I can view my portfolio online anytime. I’ve been building my Seedrs portfolio for five years now and always look to spread the risk amongst different sectors and stages."

"Until Seedrs, the opportunity to invest personally in early-stage and growth ventures didn’t exist. I’m pleased to see Seedrs take investor protections seriously, offering a wide range of investment opportunities and continuing to innovate with products like their Secondary Market."

Investing involves risks, including loss of capital, illiquidity, lack of dividends and dilution, and should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Please read the Risk Warnings before investing. Investments should only be made by investors who understand these risks. AutoInvest enables you to automatically invest in campaigns based on criteria you have selected. Each investment will be structurally the same as if you had invested into individual campaigns. Note that not all shares will be eligible for the secondary market and, even if they are, the ability to buy and sell shares will depend on demand. It can be difficult to find a buyer or seller, and investors should not assume that an early exit will be available just because a secondary market exists.
