Crowdcube doubles down on secondaries with Semper acquisition

Equity crowdfunding platform Crowdcube has acquired secondary dealmaking startup Semper as it looks to jump on the secondaries bandwagon picking up pace in Europe.

The deal will see Semper integrated into the Crowdcube brand over the coming months, and founders Mathias Pastor and Balthazar de Lavergne — ex-directors at French startup community The Family — stay on to lead the secondary side of the business.

Since launching 2013, UK-based Crowdcube has run crowdfunding campaigns for the likes of Monzo, Revolut and Qonto, and raised a total of £1bn for more than 1,300 businesses.
