Reflecting on Some of our Favourite Moments in 2022

The team at Simple Crowdfunding would like to wish you a very happy, prosperous and healthy new year.  

As we move into 2023, we wanted to take a moment to thank all of our customers, suppliers, friends and supporters for the backing that you provided last year.  It was another great year of engagement, investment, new project launches, education and more.  Here are just some of the highlights from 2022.

Simple Collaborations

The team and platform have been working with other platform owners globally in order to progress this marketplace.  Two of these collaborations are:

Investment Opportunities

The platform continues to see projects being funded and funds being returned.  These include:

  • Equity:  Belfield, that is currently slightly ahead of development and Court Street, an equity raise where the project is complete and is on the market for sale
  • Peer to Peer Loans (ISA friendly):  Yorkshire refurbishment opportunity that was sold and investors paid back early and Acorn’s Sherston, project that has currently raised over £1.4M
  • We also continue to fund projects that are not available to everyone

Crowdfunding & Property Education

Education took many forms last year.  We spoke at numerous events, (both property and finance events), we provided online education and some investors have had the benefit of expanding their knowledge about property through the learn whilst investing programme.

We look forward to working and growing with you this year.   THANK YOU for your continued support and for helping us make this possible.
