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 token sales (cryptocurrencies).
At Crowd for Angels, we aim to bring innovative and appealing products to the crowd, as well as funding for companies through their growth cycle. We support public and private companies through all stages of their life cycle. We do this through equity funding under SEIS, EIS tax relief and debt funding through high interest bonds (crowd bonds).
At Crowd for Angels, investors get the opportunity to connect, earn interest, capitalise and share the growth prospects of small private or public companies at no cost to themselves. Furthermore, companies only pay a fee if the funding is a success. By developing a user-friendly platform and combining this with a solid system of procedures, Crowd for Angels aims to offer high levels of member experience and satisfaction.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Concerning investors, we charge no fees.
Regarding companies, we only charge fees for successfully funded pitches. For more information on the charges, take a look at our fees page, here.
All committed funds are processed and securely kept in a specially designated 'client account' with a third party who is also regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
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.
