Daniel Daboczy, co-founder and CEO,
"Equity crowdfunding is a fast emerging market, that has arrived not only to disrupt and change the current financial models of investments but also adding new capital to a stagnant market. Investment in growth and early ventures are few and rare. We are quite proud that in the last year, since our pivot into equity crowdfunding, we've already added 2% to the total venture-funding in our main markets and over 56% new money to seed-funding Figures that clearly shows that equity crowdfunding is a model that not only increases investments but also caters for cross-border investments and attracts an global audience. We see that this is only the beginning and aim at taking an even bigger stake out of the investment market. Our strategy to do this is by growing fast, always developing and making sure that trust, quality and transparency follows every step we take."
