Compare Equity Crowdfunding

Equity Crowdfunding is where people can invest in unlisted businesses in return for shares via an online platform. Investors can take advantage of government tax incentives such as SEIS and EIS if applicable. It allows companies to get the funding they need to grow, as well as giving investors a chance to share in the success of the business. However, the opposite is also true, should the business fail investors can lose their investment.
