What is Crowd for Angels?

Crowd for Angels is a UK crowdfunding platform that offers companies and investors opportunities to raise and invest funds in different projects. Our crowdfunding opportunities include shares (equity), crowd bonds (debt) and digital assets (cryptocurrencies).

If you are looking to invest in a small private company, a small listed public company or to raise funds for your own company, then Crowd for Angels is the place for you. Find out more about is here:

How does Crowd for Angels work?

Each company creates an online pitch on the Crowd for Angels crowdfunding platform explaining its' business, what it aims to achieve with the funding and what it is offering investors in return. The pitch will include two key elements:

1) The funding targets i.e. the total amount of money the company wishes to raise

2) What the investors will receive in return. This can be shares, crowd bonds or even digitalised securities (a form of cryptocurrency).

Investors then review the crowdfunding pitches and invest their funds accordingly. All holdings will be held in the investor's digital portfolio, which is accessible 24/7. 

At Crowd for Angels, we will not list a company on our platform unless we believe it is legitimate and offers a unique investment opportunity. Only 8% of company applicants are listed on our platform and applicants will only be accepted if our team as a whole would consider investing in the company.  

The minimum investment for a Crowd for Angels investor is £25 unless the company requires a higher amount.
Who is eligible to join Crowd for Angels?
Individuals who are 18 or older are eligible to become a member on the Crowd for Angels platform. As a member you will be required to accept the terms and conditions of our site and accept the membership agreement. Please note that currently, citizens from the United States of America are unable to invest in pitches. 
What happens once the minimum funding target amount is raised?

Once the minimum funding target is reached, the paperwork is completed, the shares, crowd bond or digitalised securities are provided to the investors and the investment amount is transferred to the company's bank account.

Additionally, an investor will get any available reward they may be eligible for.

What happens if the minimum funding target amount is not reached?
If the minimum funding is not reached, the pitch will be closed and all committed funds will be returned to the investor's Crowd for Angels account.
How much funding do companies on the Crowd for Angels platform receive?

The company can set the amount of funding it requires by setting a minimum funding target and a maximum funding target as required. Once a company has reached either its minimum or maximum target amount, we will transfer all the funds dedicated to the company, less any applicable fees.

Which companies are eligible to raise funds on Crowd for Angels?

We consider all types of companies from all sectors. We look to offer the audience companies with a promising future and good investment opportunities. Prior to listing, all companies are vetted to ensure quality and suitability.

How is the valuation of a investee company determined?

During the application process, a company will determine its own valuation as well as the number of shares or bond notes which can be offered to the investors. We review this valuation in line with our expectations and market feasibility. If we believe the valuation is not justified we will share our concerns with the company.

Where are the funds kept prior to the release to the company?

Client money is held on behalf of investors, by the nominee, Thomas Grant & Company Limited in a third party segregated bank account with a Lloyds Bank PLC. This ensures client funds are not 'mixed' with those funds of Crowd for Angels (UK) Limited "The Company".

A segregated bank account is meant to hold a customer's funds separately from a company's funds in the interests of the customer's security. This ensures that we can only move money from this account on your instruction. Furthermore, if Crowd for Angels becomes insolvent, your money (including any committed funds) will be safe and creditors do not have claims to it.
