Crowdcube’s verification process
Once you’ve submitted your pitch, to help us get to know your business, you'll be asked to provide some basic legal, financial and compliance information. Assuming there are no issues with the information provided, we will begin to review and verify your pitch text. As your pitch is a financial promotion, we will request evidence to verify any material statements included in your pitch text.
