Seedrs to become Republic Europe

Source: Seedrs

Europe’s leading private investing platform and provider of equity crowdfunding services over the last 12 years - today announced that it will officially start trading as Republic Europe.

This means that from today (10th of July 2024) ‘Republic Europe’ will be the new identity of the European operation of Republic’s Global Equities Marketplace - a product that serves retail, Sophisticated and HNW customers and is one of the most active primary issuance and secondary trading platforms in the world. Republic Europe will continue to enable individuals to invest in startups, growth companies, and, if eligible, leading VC funds, as well as support ambitious entrepreneurs in all sectors to raise capital from their communities, angels and institutional investors.

Since its founding in London in 2012, Seedrs has been at the forefront of innovation in private investing in the UK, Europe and beyond. The company was acquired by U.S. investment platform Republic in 2022 and has since continued on its founding mission to democratize access to private markets and support Europe’s most innovative entrepreneurs. In that time it has operated as a nominally distinct part of Republic’s global marketplace and while this has been a period of success for the business, where it has launched some of the most exciting deals in its history, the decision to unify the companies under a single brand has always been the logical next step for Republic.

After the 10th of July, as the business adopts its new trading name, Republic branding will start to appear across the company’s website and emails. However; some legacy of the Seedrs brand will still remain, such as as our licenced name, Seedrs Limited, or its investment infrastructure, for example, the Seedrs Nominee.

John Lake, Managing Director, Republic Europe said: “This is an incredibly exciting milestone event for Republic and is the latest step in its mission to create a world where everyone, everywhere has equal access to high-quality investment and ownership opportunities.”
