Companisto, a German equity-based crowdfunding platform, has so far raised €4.5 million for the 25 startups it’s chosen to take on. Now it’s expanding with an English-language version that will allow submissions from startups anywhere in Europe, and investments from anyone around the world. The expansion comes little over 3 months after Seedrs, a British rival, became the first equity-based crowdfunding platform to expand across Europe.
Companisto, an equity-based crowdfunding platform headquartered in Berlin, announced yesterday the launch of its new pan-European crowdfunding platform. The new English-language website will begin accepting applications from startups across Europe and will give investors from non-German speaking countries the opportunity to cash in. Since Companisto’s launch two years ago, more than 15,600 investments totaling over €4.5 million have been made by its investors or “Companists”. The platform has a 100 percent success rate for startups that chose to crowdfund through its platform. Companies that have been funded through Companisto include frozen yoghurt chain Wonderpots and healthy snack delivery service BiteBox.
