Founded as early as 2009 by a team of Dutch entrepreneurs, Symbid is an online investment platform that helps private investors, entrepreneurs and start-ups come together in a safe and secure funding ecosystem.
As one of the world's first equity crowdfunding platforms, Symbid enables non-accredited investors (i.e. anyone) to become shareholders in innovative, emerging, & potentially profitable companies with a minimum investment of $27 (€20). Returns on investment are derived from financial dividends, value growth, rewards, and benefits. So far, all of their funded companies are still active & growing, while many have earned their investors a healthy profit.
