Fintech startup Fagura.com announces that it has successfully closed its second round of equity investments, held on the London platform Seedrs. More than 280 investors declared their support for the project and their trust in the team, investing amounts from 20 to tens of thousands of Euros. In total, the investment that the startup will raise is over 781 thousand euros, including the contributions of 7 angel investors who will join directly and represents 195% of the initially set target and the largest amount attracted on Seedrs by a startup from the Romanian space.
The crowdfunding campaign took place in two stages, the private one where investors from the Fagura community invested primarily and the public one, open to investors from all over the world. As a result, Fagura offers investors equity in the proportion of approx. 13.5% at a post-money valuation of the business of 5.78 million euros. The funds raised in this investment round will be used to expand the project in Romania and develop the first digital banking services on the platform.
Today, loans on the Fagura platform are available to individuals and companies from the Republic of Moldova, but in terms of investments the platform is available for all EU and UK citizens.
