Companisto Launches Pan-European Platform for Equity-based Crowdfunding



Dear Companists,

We are pleased that we can announce breaking news today!

As you might know, Companisto is already among the biggest equity-based crowdfunding platforms in Europe. By now, investors from 39 different countries are participating in innovative start-ups. Together, you have invested more than 4,600,000 euros in 26 successful financing rounds. For almost two years, the whole team has been working passionately on the improvement of Companisto. But only you, the Companists, made this development possible in the first place.

Start-ups from across Europe Can Be Financed

Collectively, we are taking the next step now. We are proud and happy to announce that today, on Monday, 10 March 2014, we are launching a pan-European platform for equity-based crowdfunding – – to support start-up teams from all over the continent. Our goal is to attract the best and most promising entrepreneurs from all over Europe and to connect them with investors throughout the world.

Investments Are Possible around the Globe

The new English-language site will allow submissions from any business based in Europe and investments from anywhere in the world, making it a unique offer in the equity-based crowdfunding space.

Based in Berlin, Germany, we have previously concentrated solely on the German-speaking market. Since its launch in 2012, the platform has seen over 15,600 investments with a total of more than € 4.6m, already securing its place as one of the leading equity-based crowdfunding platforms in Europe.

On the international platform, start-ups that address a global audience or plan their internationalization in the near future will have an ideal starting point. They will be able to present themselves to a wide, international audience in no time and to find investors and multipliers via Companisto.

 Attracting Europe's Brightest Entrepreneurs

We want to attract the best and brightest entrepreneurs in Europe and link them up with investors from all over the world. We already have renowned investors involved in Companisto, which demonstrates that our vetting processes ensures that only the strongest candidates make it on to our platform. More than 1,000 start-ups have applied to Companisto so far, with only 25 making it through our rigorous selection process. Moreover, we want to provide you with all the information you need in order to make an informed judgment about the investment potential of a company on Companisto.
