About CrowdBnk

CrowdBnk is an equity crowdfunding platform offering start-ups and SMEs in the UK an efficient and transparent way to raise growth capital. CrowdBnk focuses on equity fund raises for high growth potential businesses – i.e. businesses which are typically showing revenue and require an equity boost to accelerate growth. CrowdBnk is an appointed representative of Resolution Compliance (which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority), and has the necessary permissions to offer crowdfunded equity investments to all appropriate UK-based investors. CrowdBnk’s platform has digitised most of the investment process: including proprietary software-based due diligence, online and mobile payments through to term sheet generation and deal execution. For equity investments, CrowdBnk provides tailored term sheets, direct shareholding and shareholder registry services through partners. All projects undergo a robust vetting process before being listed, including standard KYC, AML, credit checks, review of business plans and financial projections, accounts review (where appropriate) and entrepreneur interviews.
