Shadow Foundr Ltd

Shadow Foundr is the private investor network and crowdfunding platform that lets you follow the lead of experienced investors into early-stage companies. All our opportunities are funded to a minimum of 30% before they appear on the platform, meaning an investment has serious backing before you commit. We understand crowdfunding is an exciting concept but we also understand the importance of putting the investors’ interests and compliance at the core of the activity. Extensive due diligence is carried out by the team; valuations and entrepreneurs are questioned in depth; and opportunities scrutinised, before we seek firm commitments to fund a significant proportion of a target fund-raise, by our existing investor network. Once these commitments are in place, our platform allows every-day investors to invest directly into these pre-vetted, early-stage companies and SMEs. Shadow Foundr's ability to call on an established network of business angels and other professional investors, including family offices, venture capital and other authorised financial institutions, to commit to an opportunity before it is presented on the platform, provides comfort for crowd investors.
