Invesdor scores first successful Swedish funding round, announces launch event in Stockholm
Stockholm 28 September 2017
- Nordic equity crowdfunding platform Invesdor’s first Swedish case Sharpfin AB reaches its funding goal
- Invesdor announces launch event to be held 4th of October in Stockholm
- Invesdor’s next ‘big bang’ Swedish funding round opens in October
A Stockholm-based company developing the next generation of wealth management software, Sharpfin AB became the first successful funding round of a Swedish company on Invesdor.com. Having exceeded SEK 2.2 million, the company has extended the subscription period of its equity offering until 10th of October to raise up to SEK 5 million.
“We believe that crowdfunding is the future of investments. Having many investors investing smaller portions make their investment portfolios more diverse”, says Markus Alin, CEO and co-founder of Sharpfin. “We are happy that investors from ten different countries have chosen to join us, and we welcome everyone who still decides to invest in Sharpfin.”
To celebrate the successful first case and meet industry stakeholders in Stockholm, Invesdor announces its Swedish launch event. The event will be held on 4 October from 5 pm onwards at United Spaces, Stockholm. Representatives of Swedish media are warmly welcomed.
The agenda for the event will include presentations by Invesdor CEO Lasse Mäkelä, Sharpfin CEO Markus Alin and Otto Linna, CEO of Invesdor’s most successful current funding round Yepzon. Also joining attendants at the event will be representatives of Invesdor’s next Swedish case.
Complimentary food and drinks will be served. Representatives of the media, potential partners, investors and entrepreneurs are welcomed to register for the event on Eventbrite.
“We are very humbled by the reception we have received in Sweden, both among businesses looking for capital and investors providing it. Swedish investors are very experienced and savvy, and we have learnt that they are hungry for more alternative investments”, says Invesdor CEO Lasse Mäkelä.
On Invesdor’s next Swedish case, due to open in October, Mäkelä has but few words to say: “It is going to be a big one; we’re launching in Sweden with a bang”.
