SeedBlink allows investors to safely invest across borders in European technology startups
SeedBlink enables investors to safely co-invest across borders in a thoroughly curated list of tech startups with a European DNA, together with a strong network of venture capital partners. Individuals can participate with as little as €2,500
“The ECSPR license is an important milestone in our European expansion and provides investors and us with a clear framework. Allowing investment capital to flow more freely and smoothly to innovation across Europe as a single global market can dramatically increase Europe’s competitiveness as a whole. SeedBlink is proud to support this common goal”, added Carmen Sebe, CEO of SeedBlink.
Under the ECSPR license and the passport from ESMA, SeedBlink was allowed to set up a secondary market where investors can have more control over their portfolio through bulletin boards where buyers and sellers can find each other. In March, SeedBlink launched the Secondary Market, addressing a significant concern of startup investors: liquidity.
