Equity crowdfunding

New expression for ES... "Equity crowdfunding".

Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equity_crowdfunding

Equity crowdfunding is the online offering of private company securities to a group of people for investment. Because equity crowdfunding involves investment into a commercial enterprise, it is often subject to securities and financial regulation. Equity crowdfunding is also referred to as crowdinvesting, investment crowdfunding, or crowd equity.

Equity crowdfunding is a mechanism that enables broad groups of investors to fund startup companies and small businesses in return for equity. Investors give money to a business and receive ownership of a small piece of that business. If the business succeeds, then its value goes up, as well as the value of a share in that business—the converse is also true. Coverage of equity crowdfunding indicates that its potential is greatest with startup businesses that are seeking smaller investments to achieve establishment, while follow-on funding (required for subsequent growth) may come from other sources

Example? "Crowdcube" (and Wiki has an entry for this also):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crowdcube

Starts off:
Crowdcube was established by Darren Westlake and Luke Lang in 2011 and is a leading investment crowdfunding platform. Crowdcube enables anyone to invest alongside professional investors in start-up, early stage and growth businesses through equity and debt investment options. The platform has a 300,000-strong crowd looking for more interesting investments. Investing in businesses on Crowdcube is free, quick and has no obligations.

To date, Crowdcube has raised over £185m for more than 450 raises and built a dominant UK market share of almost 50% of the £245m UK equity crowdfunding market.

Crowdfunding is an alternative method of financing a business, which allows everyday investors, professionals and venture capitalists to invest as little or as much as they like, typically through an online platform. It is where a community of like-minded people pool their money and knowledge together to back startup, early and growth stage businesses. Crowdcube gives everyone the opportunity to become ‘armchair Dragons’, building upon their own investment portfolio and supporting British businesses. Developed as an alternative to banks, business angel, or venture capital funding, start-ups can use the Crowdcube platform to obtain finance from the public.


Anybuddy on ES seeing this stuff? ZERO results right now in a search on Crowdcube for "electric bicycle"... or "electric" anything. Anybuddy here interested in making money selling ebikes? Just curious.

Interesting... maybe:

https://www.crowdcube.com/investments?order=percentage

So. Currently we got "ME+EM" (Worn by clientele including The Duchess of Cambridge and Emma Watson, ME+EM is a fashion brand that delivers directly to the customer from the factory. ) at "151% Raised at £1,063,220, Investors 638, Target £700,000, Equity 14.06%, Pre-money valuation £6,500,000... "The Wild Beer Co" (Exporting to 22 countries and averaging annual growth of over 100% in its first 4 years, Wild Beer is one of the UK’s most creative breweries. Using barrel-aged wild fermentation to create complex flavours, Wild Beer pairs beer with food in a fusion of flavour through its bar/restaurants.) at 124% Raised £1,248,380, Investors 1268, Target £1,000,000, Equity 4.76%, Pre-money valuation £25,000,000... and so on.

Interesting that zero transportation outfits have tried to jump aboard yet with "ebikes" or wattEVer...
