Aescuvest is the first pan—European equity crowdfunding platform exclusively dedicated to the health sector, a dynamic market that is large in size, shows sustained growth rates and is driven by innovation. For start-up companies it serves as an independent launch pad for funding campaigns up to EURO 10m and market smart ideas, with the potential to directly target up to 550,000 healthcare professionals as well as general public all over Europe.
Based in the financial hub of Frankfurt, www.aescuvest.de was started as a platform for crowdfunding campaigns for Germany in 2015, bringing innovations in medtech, biotech and digital health to life. In 2018, the start of www.aescuvest.eu in exclusive co-operation with EIT Health – one of the largest healthcare initiatives worldwide – marked the premier of the first platform to offer cross-border equity crowdfunding for healthcare companies and investors all over Europe: www.aescuvest.eu
aescuvest.eu is the number one such platform dedicated to foster and fund innovations from European start-ups and SMEs in an end-to-end digital process and allows companies to promote campaigns, and EU citizens to invest across borders. The platform gives both, retail and institutional investors access to best-in-class companies in the core health sectors biotechnology, medical technology and digital health. As prospectus-based security offerings, investment opportunities undergo a thorough approval and due-diligence process.
aescuvest.eu enables investors to participate in handpicked projects that have been reviewed by an independent investment committee. It provides the possibility to take advantage of early stage investments in companies from the EIT Health network and beyond. The co-owner model is structured to enable retail investments alongside business angel and venture capital funding. Open to companies from across the EU, the initial funding focus will be on the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Austria, Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
