Having completed his first full year at Seedrs, new CEO Jeff Kelisky has taken the world’s first regulated crowdfunding platform to record levels of investment. Kelisky helped Seedrs raise another £10 million to support growth, including £4 million from top-backer Neil Woodford and £6 million from an equity crowd raise, giving the company a value of £50 million and building on the £230 million the firm has already invested across some 510 deals. Despite admitting that much of its potential income is ‘difficult to quantify’, Seedrs became the world’s first regulated crowdfunding platform in 2009 and is unique in allowing small-scale investments from £500-£1,000, meaning there is no need for funders to ‘sell their souls’ to support a business.
