The team of Cadia Startup Exchange launched today the first in the world equity crowdfunding platform with a secondary market. People who were signed up for their newsletter are aware that the process of integration of an automated share market to the platform took a few months more than anticipated. However, the website is now online for all crowdfunding and stock market enthusiasts who wish to take advantage of the brand new opportunity in the industry.
Cadia Startup Exchange brings innovation into the world of equity crowdfunding and small business funding on the whole. The platform offers a solution for startups to gather initial capital for their business and to Small & Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to finance their latest ideas or expansion plans by selling shares of their companies to Investors. Cadia Startup Exchange adds to the equity crowdfunding business model a fully operating stock market allowing businesses to be as close as possible to having a real IPO. On the platform’s secondary market investors can trade their shares and seek exit and cash out from the investment much earlier than any other competitive business model offers (loans, VC funds, regular equity funding, perks-based equity crowdfunding etc).
Prior to the launch, Cadia Startup Exchange’s team didn’t keep its hands crossed. A number of presentations were organized in Eastern Europe where the official representative office is located (Sofia, Bulgaria). They became also one of the founding members of the European Equity Crowdfunding Association. Read more about this here:
The platform is organized in such a way that with a single account users can take advantage of all the features: list a startup project, list a project of their small business, invest in projects listed on the platform, buy / sell shares and much more. An Affiliate Program is also available for everyone who wishes to have an additional source of income.
