Revealed: the UK's biggest crowdfunder

One company has today cemented its position as the UK's biggest crowdfunder.

by Rebecca Burn-Callander

Seedrs, which has been jostling for position against rival platform Crowdcube over the past five years, emerged the clear victor today.

Over the past three months, Seedrs claims that its completed deals – those that hit 100% of their target – totalled £29.4m. That's almost 70% higher than Crowdcube’s tally.

This compounds last year's data, which showed that Seedrs funded 134 deals during the whole of 2016, with Crowdcube behind on 124. That was Seedrs strongest ever year, with more than £85m invested; £20m more than in 2015.
