Business owners want smart money - they rely on investors’ input and skills to help them grow.
We pride ourselves on quality over quantity. FundedByMe endeavours to provide crowd investors with diverse and exciting investment opportunities that show potential to succeed.
Company owners are required to provide information about investments, valuations, traction and a business overview.
If we feel that a business meets our requirements and appeals to the crowd they can start the campaign creation process.
Our team reviews the campaign and provides detailed feedback based on experience and expertise to ensure high quality and a full overview.
Once our standards are met, the campaign may choose to go live either publicly or in a private round. Only 15% of applicants get to launch.
Wheelys Café raised €844,556 from 220 investors with a minimum investment of €760, reaching 410% of their crowdfunding goal.
FundedByMe made it possible for us to let ordinary people invest in Wheelys - particularly our café owners, people who are not typical investors. We love experienced investors, but it’s priceless to have different opinions and experiences involved in our brand to support and help us grow. Additionally, the FundedByMe team was so nice to work with - I warmly recommend the crowd investment route to any startup founder!
Both individuals and companies can invest on FundedByMe. Swedish citizens receive a tax relief on investments referred to as “Investeraravdrag”.
Learn more at Skatteverket's website.
Example: Company AB issues new shares at SEK 100 per share and the company is registered for “Investeraravdraget”. Karl signs up for 500 new shares and pays SEK 50,000.
“Investeraravdraget” is calculated on half of the amount invested (SEK 25,000) which gives a tax relief of SEK 7,500 (SEK 25,000 x 30%).
Investing in startups and early stage businesses involves high risks, including loss of investment, illiquidity, lack of dividends and dilution, and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio.
FundedByMe is targeted solely at investors and lenders who can evaluate and understand these risks and make their own investment decisions.
