Seedrs in £10mn Series A fundraising, advised by Liberum
Equity crowdfunding leader Seedrs, advised by Liberum, has undertaken a £10 million Series A fundraising round led by Woodford Patient Capital Trust and Augmentum Capital.
Seedrs will use the capital raised to expand significantly its marketing efforts in the UK and Europe, boost its platform development and expand into the US.
The Seedrs online platform provides a simple, highly professional process that empowers and protects investors while helping businesses raise capital and grow.
"It has been a real privilege to work with Liberum as we built our Series A fundraising round,” said Seedrs CEO and co-founder Jeff Lynn.
“They are true leaders in the alternative finance space, and they have a deep understanding of how businesses like Seedrs are creating value in the financial services ecosystem.
“The Seedrs team and I are very appreciative of the valuable advice, support and introductions they provided us throughout the fundraising process," Mr Lynn added.
“The investment by two such high-quality investors is a deserved endorsement for Seedrs,” Simon Atkinson, Liberum’s Head of Alternative Finance, said.
“Seedrs has from the outset focused on ensuring that investors get professional grade investor protections and can share in the success of the businesses that they provide capital to.
“This was an important factor in our wishing to work with them and is why we can see Seedrs playing a growing role on fundraisings alongside traditional investment banks like ourselves,” Mr Atkinson added.
