Young Platform opens up its third office in London at the launch of the equity crowdfunding on Seedrs, the English fundraising platform specialised in startups.
Since the 17th of June, investors have had access to the Public phase of the Young Platform fundraising campaign, which achieved the target of €500,000 in only 36 hours. The campaign is now overfunding with over 450 investors.
As a conclusion to this round, and with a view to internationalisation and market expansion, Young Platform has chosen Level 39.
Located in the middle of one of the world’s most important financial districts and the iconic One Canada Square, Level 39 is Europe’s largest FinTech incubator, which is home to many companies such as Revolut.
“Level 39 is an opportunity for Young to build a solid network of FinTech partners within the international market,” explains Diego D’Aquilio, CMO of Young Platform, “this will make the company’s growth faster and more effective.”
We are deeply convinced that the world of cryptocurrencies represents a form of financial freedom and everyone should be able to access it. With this goal in mind, our Operations Team is constantly working on international expansion, also by hiring international professionals to complete and consolidate the team.
Owned wholly by the Canary Wharf Group, Level 39 launched in March 2013. Since then, Level 39 has grown from a simple idea into a three-floor, 80,000 square foot community space occupying the 39th, 24th and 42nd floors of One Canada Square.
Today Level 39 is a community of 1,250 people, which are part of 220 companies from 48 nations, leaders in Cybersecurity, FinTech and Retail Tech, a community that is shaping the future of finance and technology. In 2017 the members of Level39 have raised £100 million in investment.
“We are trying to make the world of cryptocurrency accessible to everyone”
concludes Diego D’Aquilio CMO of Young Platform, “and we’re proud to be part of an ecosystem like Level 39, a place that reflects our values and goals.
