People who dare to be different are the backbone of tomorrow’s economy. They are visionair, work day and night on ideas that most of us don’t understand yet. They are the hero’s. These hero’s shape tomorrow’s world. Then why is it, that these heroes often don’t get the stage they deserve and the funding they require, to further work on their vision and introduce it to the world?
We should facilitate these entrepreneurs so they can realize their dreams.
We make the market for equity funding accessible for ambitious entrepreneurs At Symbid ambitious entrepreneurs present their plans to thousands of crowdfunders and professional investors. These investors invest in the businesses they believe in and become a shareholder. This way they benefit from future growth of the company.
Symbid started in 2011 as one of the first equity crowdfunding platforms in the world. Our mission: We want to empower entrepreneurship by providing everyone who dares to be different with access to the required funding.
So far we have funded over 130 businesses via equity crowdfunding. In total for over €13 mln. Based on years of experience, everyday we help startups and growing businesses with the funding they need, so they can realize their entrepreneurial dream.
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.
