Source: Fintech Alliance

Today, FinTech Alliance -the Government-backed digital ecosystem that brings together and champions the UK’s vibrant FinTech community – has announced its latest partnership with private investment platform Seedrs.

The partnership will allow FinTech Alliance to connect community companies, looking to raise capital, with Seedrs. Once connected, the Seedrs team will assist them through the onboarding process, helping them set up a campaign on their platform. FinTech Alliance will continue to support the businesses raising by enabling them to set up a microsite, publicise their campaign, and connect with other founders and potential investors.

Seedrs is Europe’s leading online private investing platform that allows individuals to invest in startups, growth companies, and top VC funds for eligible investors, as well as enabling ambitious entrepreneurs in all sectors to raise capital from their communities, angels, and institutional investors. Since its launch in 2012, Seedrs has funded more than 1,800 deals, with over £2.3bn invested on the platform to date. With the recent acquisition of Seedrs by Republic, it is now part of the largest private investing platform in the world.

The partnership also means Seedrs is now part of the FinTech Alliance community and can share its news and insights online and in-person, connect with other companies on the platform, and access all of the FinTech Alliance Hubs

Louis Williams, Community Manager, FinTech Alliance, commented: “We are delighted to be working with the team at Seedrs to help FinTechs launch impactful crowdfunding campaigns. At FinTech Alliance, we are well placed to help the UK FinTech community through what promises to be an interesting yet challenging year ahead. We will support FinTechs with access to funding, partners, talent, insights and more. However, we can’t do this alone. Collaborating with companies like Seedrs enables our platform to be much bigger and shows that FinTech Alliance is part of a supportive ecosystem across the UK. The partnership will enable us to support FinTechs in looking at all the fundraising options available and finding what’s right for them - while those who choose to raise on the Seedrs platform will be supported by all the wraparound services FinTech Alliance offers, including insights on fundraising and support for their campaign.”
