I feel privileged and delighted to lead our incredibly talented team at Seedrs on our very bold mission. We have a track record of delivering many firsts to market in aligning the interests of smart investors and ambitious businesses in equity crowdfunding – and this is only the beginning. With the products and services in our pipeline today, I look forward to accelerating on that success and continuing Seedrs’ unique dedication to quality, transparency, and service to its fast growing customer base.
