Still looking for the perfect last-minute gift for your loved-ones this holiday season? You’re in luck! We’ve compiled a list of offers, last-minute gift ideas and shopping tips for the savviest of gift-givers, from some of the most indulgent and interesting Seedrs-funded businesses.
In the year since Seedrs launched, we have been learning constantly what differentiates successful from unsuccessful campaigns. The more we learn, the more we try to communicate to the entrepreneur what does and doesn’t work so that they stand the best chance of raising the funding they are seeking.
The investors who use Seedrs fall into two broad categories. Many are independent investors, people who have come to Seedrs to browse, discover and invest in great startups. Others are network investors who have used Seedrs to invest in a specific startup.
PixelPin co-founder Geoff Anderson revealed to Startups.co.uk how they closed their pitch in record time and shared tips for how other entrepreneurs can do the same.
He also highlighted why PixelPin chose Seedrs to raise crowdfunding and weren’t afraid of having 193 investors invest in their growth.

Looking around for the right investment fit for your needs is like going out on dates and can be as important as a marriage in the long-term. So, how do you know when an investment really is “Mr. or Ms. Right”? There are a few things to look out for to help you determine if you’ve found a great fit.
Setting up a business can be a hugely exciting adventure, but finding the funding to make it a success can be one of the most challenging bits. So, we’ve broken down the options for entrepreneurs and gone back to basics with the ABCs of raising early-stage capital.
Before Seedrs, investing in startups was expensive and time-consuming. We change that by streamlining the process, eliminating unnecessary bespoke documentation and bringing the legal due diligence in-house. This means investors aren’t bothered with cumbersome paperwork and hefty lawyers’ fees.
Now that we’ve had the opportunity to review a number of great startup listings that have been submitted to us, we thought we’d offer some advice for entrepreneurs to consider when creating their listing (or any other pitch to investors) to ensure they are getting the most out of the opportunity to showcase their business and raise capital.
Raising an initial round of capital for your early-stage startup can be overwhelming. So, we’ve created a quick list of tips for entrepreneurs looking to raise funds from the crowd to keep you focused, realistic and ready to succeed.
