People all over the world are becoming better connected, leading to cheaper, faster and simpler access to products and services. Yet the current flow of funding and finance does not reflect this new reality. The entrepreneurs and investors who form the small- and medium-sized enterprise (SME) backbone of our economies frequently experience obstacles and barriers when seeking to connect, fund and grow. Recent financial crises and stricter banking regulations have caused a vacuum in the financial life cycle of small businesses. We must re-think our access to capital.
Symbid strives for a world with a transparent financial market, where entrepreneurs and investors jointly realize their ambitions and create sustainable value. Trust is central on our financing platform, where we connect entrepreneurs and investors. This way, we give entrepreneurs access to the necessary funding to grow and innovate, while investors can easily become shareholders in companies they believe in, in order to benefit from future growth. Started in 2011 as one of the first equity crowdfunding platforms in the world, Symbid has successfully helped more than 210 companies financially, for more than € 28 million, invested by our network of investors consisting of more than 25,000 affiliated investors.
After lots of hard work we're delighted to release our first ever TV commercial. Made with love in Rotterdam - our hometown - this video shows what we're all about: giving people the chance to support small businesses and benefit from their growth. In other words, our mission is to democratise the world of finance.
We recently launched our very own blog covering the worlds of financial technology, alternative finance and entrepreneurship. Oh, and lots of cool start-up stuff. And every blog needs its own branding, right? So we brought the whole team to a very cold and very windy beach in the Netherlands for a photoshoot.

Check out our awesome new hoodies, as modelled beautifully by Marc on one of our boat excursions through the centre of Rotterdam.
