Capital Raised

Established in 2011, Crowdcube was one of the first equity crowdfunding platforms in the UK. They were formed in a "post-recession" world to help entrepreneurs who dream big get the equity investment they need in order to grow.

Investor fees

There is a fixed minimum investment of £10 per opportunity.

There are no fees to become a member of the investor community. However, a fee of 1.5% of the invested amount is applied to each investment. This fee is subject to a minimum of £0.50p and is capped at a maximum of £250.00 and is collected when the payment for the investment is processed by Crowdcube. For example, if you invest £10.00 when the payment is processed the lender will pay the minimum fee of £0.50p, making the total amount that is collected £10.50.

An investor can cancel their investment at any time while the crowdfunding pitch is live. If the lender is investing over £5,000 and wishes to reduce or cancel the amount invested, then they are asked to contact Crowdcube Support directly.

Raise Finance Fees

There is no fee for listing a business equity opportunity on Crowdcube. The minimum amount a company can raise is £10,000 and there is a success fee of 7% (excl. VAT) applies on the amount successfully raised. There is also a completion fee which is on average 0.75% - 1.25% of all funds raised. This fee includes their third-party provider’s variable costs and the cost of collecting, reconciling, and distributing the raised funds.
