About Symbid

Symbid envisions a world with transparent financial markets, where entrepreneurs and investors collectively realize their dreams and create sustainable value. 

On our funding platform we build trustworthy connections between ambitious entrepreneurs and investors looking for business ideas they believe in. Doing so we provide entrepreneurs with the funding they need to grow and innovate while investors big or small can easily become a shareholder in businesses they believe in, and benefit from future growth.

Equity funding

We believe equity funding is the most suitable type of funding for startups and young fast growing companies. Why? As a startup, you are looking for funding but also for time to execute your plans. Your company may still be pre-revenue. Een loan, where you have to start shortly paying repayments + interest is not a good idea.

Investors buy a share in a business because they believe in plan and hope to benefit from future growth of the company value. They are not looking for short term return, which gives entrepreneurs the the time they need to execute their plan.
