Recently celebrating its 3rd birthday, the crowd investment platform FundedByMe is growing in rapid speed. Following their successful opening of an office in Singapore 2013, FundedByMe today announces that the Singapore based investment company Link2Ventures invests an undisclosed amount in the company for further expansions into Asia Pacific - making Singapore its crowdfunding hub and center of operations for the region. Beside shares, Link2Ventures also receives a board chair in FundedByMe.
“FundedByMe makes crowdfunding and investing in companies something easy and casual. We are thrilled to be a part of this team and we are looking forward to see what we can achieve together”, says Choon Seng Tan, spokes person for Link2Ventures who now also joins as board member of FundedByMe.
“We’ve been looking for the right investors and were brought together with Link2Ventures by our partner Frontier”, comments Daniel Daboczy, CEO and co-founder. “Collaborating with Link2Ventures means we’ve got a strong and professional partner in our ambitions to expand geographically and become a one-stop-shop for funding companies both in Europe and Asia.“
With more than 39,000 registered users, the platform has raised over €6 million in both equity and reward based crowdfunding campaigns and is currently adding crowd lending to its services. ”We want to be the world’s best business crowd investment platform and this investment together with our recent hires of key personnel and development of our financial services gives us a great advantage in our mission”, says Daniel Daboczy.
