On March 8th 2019, FundedByMe Crowdfunding AB (publ) will be officially listed on the Nordic Growth Market (NGM).
The company’s A shares will be listed under the name FBM MTF A and the B shares under the name FBM MTF B. Since January 2018, the company has been actively striving for a future listing. With this listing, FundedByMe hopes to inspire other companies to follow in their steps - to go from being only an idea to a listed company. Despite their unconventional background, the FundedByMe founders Arno Smit and Daniel Daboczy have been able to successfully take an idea, create a crowdfunding market and build a company with more than 30 employees active in 7 countries.
FundedByMe’s vision is to bring together people and financing opportunities across the world. To clear the path in Fintech that is based on the corner stones within crowdfunding; the power of many. To be able to provide entrepreneurs with better methods for raising funds, through the digital and global tool that is crowdfunding at fundedbyme.com, as well as to offer investors and the people new investment opportunities. Today FundedByMe is the fastest growing crowdfunding platform in Scandinavia within equity crowdfunding. At FundedByMe’s platform several companies and campaigns are listed every week, allowing anyone (within certain regional premises) to join and to invest, once the campaign is launched.
Comments from founders and chairman
“Choosing to list FundedByMe is a clear step in the direction of a long curve of possibilities, and should definitely not be considered to be the end of a journey. As a listed company FundedByMe is able to expedite the strategic growth as well as actively pursue the European and Asian consolidation work forward. This step is important, but it is only the beginning. We have so much more to give and we look forward to operating in a listed environment, with the challenges and advantages that includes.” - Daniel Daboczy, CEO and co-founder of FundedByMe.
“Achieving this listing has meant that we have carried out the first part of our vision, creating an ecosystem of companies from start to finish. By “eating our own dog food” we prove that by inviting the larger public to be involved we can create great companies together.” - Arno Smit, CTO and co-founder of FundedByMe.
“I have followed Daniel and Arno’s journey since the first time they introduced the idea of FundedByMe, before they even had launched the website. It’s been interesting and worthwhile to follow these ambitious entrepreneurs. To see them grow and to see crowdfunding become as established as it has. I’m very excited about the next five years and the next steps of FundedByMe.” - Johan Jörgensen, shareholder and Chairman.
