The financial technology (FinTech) market is exploding. A recent report from Accenture found that global investment in Fintech has sky-rocketed from $930 million in 2008 to more than $12bn by the beginning of 2015. Fintech is opening up an incredible world of possibilities for both businesses and everyday people. And one of the fastest growing sectors in Fintech is crowdfunding.
Crowdfunding & FinTech
Crowdfunding is a worldwide movement. In 2015 Goldman Sachs claimed that globally, crowdfunding was “potentially the most disruptive of all new models of finance.”
Globally, the UK is leading the equity crowdfunding sector- and there is plenty of room for growth with opportunities now expanding into new areas such as property crowdfunding. It is transforming the alternative finance space in the UK.
Shadow Foundr & FinTech
Shadow Foundr is the crowdfunding platform in this $12Bn Fintech Sector, that lets you follow the lead of experienced investors before committing to an opportunity.
All of our opportunities are funded to a minimum of 30% before they appear on the platform, meaning an investment has serious backing before someone from The Crowd commits. We are fully authorised and regulated by the FCA and in our first 12 months we have already raised in excess of £6m for ventures.
Through our investor-led focus, we aim to turn the existing crowdfunding success rate on its head, to prove that the sector is a viable way for everyday investors to make genuine returns, and show that equity crowdfunding has a sustainable future in the alternative finance space.
Generally on other crowdfunding sites, success is measured by the amounts of funds raised or the number of successful raises. To us though, success is about delivering investors timely exits and returns.
