• Braveheart, a leading Scottish fund manager, established a fund to invest through equity crowdfunding platform Crowdcube in 2014
• Braveheart has now elected to move the fund to Seedrs, another UK-based equity crowdfunding platform
Seedrs today announces that Braveheart Investment Group plc (“Braveheart”) has chosen to partner with Seedrs to invest in early-stage businesses listed on its platform.
The partnership with Seedrs, one of the leading and most trusted equity crowdfunding platforms, will help to provide Braveheart with continuing deal flow in the coming months for the fund.
Braveheart had originally partnered with crowdfunding platform Crowdcube to launch the fund. However, Braveheart has now terminated its partnership with Crowdcube and decided to work with Seedrs.
Geoffrey Thomson, CEO, Braveheart Investment Group plc:
“Seedrs is an outstanding platform with considerable investment expertise. Working with Seedrs will allow us to get exposure to its strong network of high growth companies while taking advantage of its highly effective investment processes. We know we’re in good hands partnering with the Seedrs team, and we look forward to working together as we build this relationship.”
Seedrs (www.seedrs.com) was the first regulated equity crowdfunding platform in the world and closed more deals in 2014 than any other equity crowdfunding platform in Europe. The firm has built a reputation for very efficient and high quality due diligence processes which result in deals being closed within weeks, while also affording investors professional grade investor protections.
Jeff Lynn, CEO, Seedrs said:
“Braveheart is an experienced institutional investment manager with a strong and tangible track record of investing into ambitious, growth focused businesses. We are delighted that it has decided to move to Seedrs, and we very much look forward to providing it with the very highest level of service and professionalism.”
