Merism Capital, the social impact seed fund, has partnered with Crowdcube, which is reported to be the first crowdfunding website in the world to offer ordinary people equity in exchange for investment.
Merism Capital's partnership with Crowdcube will support social entrepreneurs and businesses that are seeking investment capital of below £50,000.
”I’m a big believer in crowdfunding and this partnership complements our work really well whilst also growing the retail investor base for social businesses. ” says Stephen Rockman, founder of Merism Capital, “Merism Capital connects constantly with social entrepreneurs, and because we focus on investment opportunities between £50,000 and £150,000, we can’t always work with everyone we think may be promising. So for those seeking smaller seed rounds, Crowdcube gives us a fantastic alternative funding channel.”

to crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. As one of the most influential and credible authorities in the crowdsourcing space,
Crowdsourcing.org is recognized worldwide for its intellectual capital, crowdsourcing and crowdfunding
practice expertise and unbiased thought leadership.
