Here at Crowd for Angels we often get asked by investors what due diligence we carry out on the companies that raise funds on our platform.
As a company that is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), we have to comply with strict rules on how we conduct our business. But as an organisation we also take our ethical conduct seriously, going beyond the written regulations to ensure that companies pitching on our platform are offering a valid investment proposition to our members.
This means that apart from carrying out the required factual checks on areas such as identity, company accounts and the business plan, we also carry out more “soft” checks. We call every company which has applied to discuss their funding needs and we make every effort to meet with the directors and key staff in person prior to the raise. We have met with the directors from over 97% the companies which have pitched on our platform to talk to them in detail about the fundraising process. And while we don’t tell companies how to value their business we will let them know if their valuation is edging towards the expensive side.
We understand that our investors have put their trust in Crowd for Angels and we take seriously our responsibility to only offer financial products which meet our strict quality criteria.
