El crecimiento del sector fintech ha supuesto un nuevo reto para multitud de firmas legales. Como plataforma líder de equity crowdfunding en Europa, gran parte de nuestros esfuerzos se han centrado en ofrecer un servicio legal innovador y único.
The rise of Fintech was perhaps the story of the City in 2015. As a leading investment crowdfunding platform, Crowdcube has been at the heart of that story and has become a prominent and pioneering fintech brand, having raised over £188m for over 400 companies.
During this time, equity crowdfunding has overtaken venture capital to become the most active investor type in UK high growth funding with Crowdcube as “the single most prolific equity investor in 2015 with 136 transactions” according to Beauhurst, a leading source of data on UK high-growth companies.
Crowdcube’s legal team, led by General Counsel Paul Massey, has been a central driver of Crowdcube’s prominence and position in the market. In recognition of the team’s positive impact on Crowdcube, and the wider crowdfunding industry, we’re pleased that we were shortlisted in two categories in this year’s FT Innovative Lawyers Awards; Most Innovative In-house Legal Team (where we came second in the rankings) and Most Innovative General Counsel, alongside established brands such as Royal Mail, Nokia, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and the British Business Bank.
