Seedrs investors have continued to back exciting growth-focused businesses
The average portfolio has 7 investments —the largest being 245!
"Seedrs is a great platform for early-stage investment opportunities as they provide access to an extremely broad range of different proposals which is impossible to have as a private investor. And they host amazing events to socialise with other investors and the entrepreneurs behind the campaigning businesses."
"Of course the investment risks are high, but by investing through Seedrs I can be more confident that some of the procedural risks associated with building and maintaining exposure to such a portfolio are contained, and professionally managed."
"Seedrs keeps the administrative process of investing as simple as possible. I particularly like that investment through Seedrs is for shares with full voting rights."
