Seedrs Review: what I have experienced so far
Seedrs is one of the world’s largest equity crowdfunding platforms in the world. It helps for new business or investment projects to raise funds from individual or institutional investors. Seedrs provides that platform for startups with the potential of becoming successful in the specific industries those operate.
Firstly, some words about opening account at Seedrs. For me it was easy process, all I needed was to click login with Google account (you also can choose to do that with Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter or do full registration). And that’s it. Later you have to upload your ID card copy to Seedrs dashboard and wait for confirmation. Add funds to Seedrs account also is enough easy and platform has a wide selection of alternatives to do that: you can choose to make a deposit with Card or to make bank transfer.
Secondly, some facts about my experience at Seedrs. I followed the startups space for a while, but it was the first time I have registered at crowdfunding platform (not a P2P lending). I know that investments are more risky and it takes way more time for startups to execute their ideas and later sell the companies. There is a chance that it might never happen. However, with higher risk comes and higher reward (if it comes). Till last summer I have invested a few hundred euros in several projects (that in my understanding is close to the exit)and waiting for the returns to come. So far, nothing has happened.
All in all, Seedrs has a lot experience in crowdfunding industry. They helped to invest more than £542M in startups, has a big database of investors and offers to them attracting investment opportunities. Moreover, the platform has user-friendly and intuitive dashboard and auto-invest tool. In the other hand, crowdfunding is more for sophisticated investors who are not afraid to lose their investments and might not be the right tool for investors who seek to earn stable returns.
