"Devon is in Crowdcube's DNA,” says Luke Lang, co-founder of the UK’s biggest crowdfunding platform.
Crowdcube is Britain’s number one equity crowdfunder, raising more capital through its platform in 2017 than any other company.
“It’s been an incredible seven years since Crowdcube launched from a small office in Exeter. Devon has helped shape the company, the people we employ, our values and our brand, every step of the way.”
Based in Exeter, the 60-strong company has just moved from the University of Exeter’s Innovation Centre, to the heart of the city’s professional services district, Southernhay.
Today the company has a team across the UK and Spain, been named the number one equity crowdfunding platform for investment, helped over 600 businesses raise growth capital and has a user base of more than 500,000. Over £310m has been successfully invested into businesses through the platform.
Luke adds: “We've proven that you can attract top people from renowned businesses like eBay and Google, nurture exceptional local talent and disrupt national and international markets from the South West. As a proud Devonian it gives me immense pride to fly the flag for our city, county and region and help shine a spotlight on the best from the west."
