Step one: Join our community
Joining Crowdcube is free and carries no obligation to invest. You will be required to categorise your investor type.
You will not be able to invest in the first 24 hours of creating your account. After the 24 hours you will be required to take a short assessment to make sure you understand the risks of investing. You can understand more about Crowdfunding here.
Once passed, you will be able to invest!
Step two: Find your inspiration
You’ll be able to view the full pitch, including the video and discussions. You will also be able to request access to the company's Restricted Documents. You can also ask for further information or interact directly with entrepreneurs using our discussion boards.
Step three: Invest from just £10
When you find a business you like you can invest directly through the pitch page.
You’ll have the option to invest a multiple of £10.
You can then click ‘Invest now’ and that’s it you’ve made an investment! Payment won’t be taken until after the pitch has successfully closed the funding round. You will be notified no less than 24 hours before payment is taken.
Step four: We’ll sort the paperwork
Once the pitch funds and is closed to further investment, we will be working in the background to complete the round. At this stage, you’ll receive a copy of the company’s proposed Articles of Association, you will also be notified of a 4-day cooling off period so you can review the Articles and consider your investment. After the cooling off period, your investment will become legally binding and we will capture the payment for your investment.
Step five: You’ll receive your share documentation
We will work with the company to finalise share numbers. Once complete, we will email you with a link for you to download your ownership statement. You will also be able to download your statement via the Portfolio Section of your Crowdcube account.
Once shares have been issued, the company will contact investors directly regarding any rewards offered.
