Estonian YesCredit has raised € 54 000 from 27 international investors with their equity crowdfunding campaign. The campaign will close on 19th May. "The crowdfunding campaign has been an interesting way of finding new investors. But the campaign is still live, this is only the beginning", says Tobias Holmgren, the CEO of YesCredit.
Registering into the crowdfunding service is free-of-charge. FundedByMe does not charge any fees from the investors, but the entrepreneurs pay a fee based on the success of the campaign. – Crowdfunding enables the company to test its business idea, and to find a support network and funding for its business operations, allowing it to launch international operations, says Kristiina Pääkkönen.
