We want to congratulate and salute our friends and clients over at Seedrs for the recently announced acquisition and deal valuing their platform at $100m (£75m).

Seedrs started operating in 2012 and after only five years it had already raised more than £210 million in investment for 500+ startups (link in portuguese), giving the opportunity to small investors to finance disruptive and innovative businesses using crowdfunding.

WidgiLabs helped Seedrs earlier this year in launching their new Seedrs Raise website and we look forward to seeing their next steps.
