Funderbeam has recently closed a funding round of € 2.3 million led by investors Draper Associates, IQ Capital, and Thomson Reuters. All previous angel investors as well as 3TS joined the round. You can now join this funding round by directly investing into Funderbeam via their own crowdinvesting platform Funderbeam markets. The Tallinn and London-based company aims to raise up to €250K.
Funderbeam was founded in 2013 and offers a global marketplace for startup investments that is built on blockchain. Part of the vision behind Funderbeam is that everyone should be able to invest in great companies and startups.
Funderbeam is challenging the traditional capital markets. In order to learn how the syndicate and platform operates, person need to have the investor status. The platform allows investors to commit any amount they want and they can now choose how long to hold on to their investment.
Urmas Peiker, co-founder of Funderbaum: “There are some who maintain the status quo, others who talk a good game, but won’t scale or build growth. And then there are those whom I’d call silent revolutionaries. These are the companies and entrepreneurs who ‘float like a butterfly and sting like a bee’. This is how we initially envisioned Funderbeam – put the ego away and get the job done.”
Funderbeam has launched three successful funding campaigns up to date, and all these investments are now tradable on the blockchain. Check out the video below to learn more about Funderbeam and the company’s plans for the future:
