Seedrs is an crowdfunding platform that, amongst others, offers equity-investment in mainly start-up and growth companies. Located in the UK, Seedrs is the largest crowdinvesting plattform in Europe, exclusively for UK investors.
Via the Seedrs plattform. participants can invest as little as €35 into Sono Motors GmbH to acquire a mediate stake of the company. If the business succeeds, then the value of the company increases, and, hence, also the value of a share in that business. At the same time, if the value decreases, the value of the share decreses as well. This can lead to a total loss of the investment.
In addition, Seedrs offers a regulated, private market for the commercialisation of shares. In this secondary market, participants can trade their shares, at a profit. Hence, investors do not have to rely on future dividend payments, but can profit from capital gains from trading their assets. In the medium term, investors will also profit from dividend payments.
For the registration on Seedrs, participants must show a valid document and proof of address, i.e. post a picture or scan of these documents on the platform, during the registration process. Through this detailed registration process, the platform ensures that all participants trade honestly and in their own name. By so doing, the operators protects other participants from wrongful or illicit trading. More details can be found on the Seedrs platform.
