Crowdcube partners Episode 1’s £100m fund for deep tech startups

Crowdcube is partnering with Episode 1 to assist in the allocation of the £100m fund focussed on digital infrastructure and deep tech startups.

The equity crowdfunding platform has launched the partnership to join up the pitch and crowdfund process.

As part of the agreement, Episode 1, which has previously backed Zoopla, Shazam and carwow, will review selected business’ pitch for funding for their digital startups ahead of a funding round on Crowdcube.

To qualify for initial consideration, the businesses will need to be registered in the UK and looking to raise between £250k-£3m.

Businesses funded through this new partnership will follow in the footsteps of disruptive brands such as Bidstack, Intelligence Fusion and Fidel UK, all of whom previously raised finance on Crowdcube.

Applications are open from today and will close on October 30th. Selected businesses will stand the chance to receive investment from both Episode 1 Ventures, and through an equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube.

Matt Cooper, chief commercial officer at Crowdcube said: “Crowdcube is delighted to be partnering with Episode 1 on our hunt for the startups building software infrastructure that’s enabling change.

He added: “Developments in API-driven technology, open-source tech and analytics software are now more important than ever. We recognise this potential and want to give everyday investors the opportunity to be a part of their future success.”
