In our latest report we investigate the correlation that’s begun to emerge between crowdfunding companies and the amounts of equity they’re parting with. Using Beauhurst deep data, we’ve unearthed some revealing statistics that tie up with the anecdotal evidence we’ve been hearing too.
Whilst some of the data we’ve looked at suggests this trend could be down to the plethora of sub-£100k raises on crowdfunding platforms, companies are attracted to crowdfunding because they’re able to dictate their own valuation. This, however, presents an ethical mine-field. With company valuations arbitrary, it’s great that fast-growth start-ups are achieving deserved value. But with valuations easily influenced by hype or marketing are crowd funders getting the ‘right’ value from their investments?
For more in depth analysis, insightful graphs and shrewd commentary, give our report on crowdfunded valuations a read.
