We bring a grown-up approach to equity crowdfunding

CrowdedHero was created on the foundation of experience and innovation bringing a whole new grown-up approach to equity-based financing. Our mission is to make high-level investment services accessible to everyone.
Discovering the full potential of equity crowdfunding

The idea for the CrowdedHero platform was born out of a simple question — why is the current equity crowdfunding scene so focused on the crowdfunding of startups and early-stage companies? Having built the Eventus Group — one of the most reputable corporate finance groups in the Baltics — and having worked with buying, developing and selling companies our entire careers, we just knew how much more untapped potential there is in equity-based financing.

We enjoy seeing companies grow. And we are able to show and deliver growth to such companies with our deep knowledge of the markets and numerous business models. So far, such an active investment-management approach has been inaccessible to the wider investor audience. Now, with CrowdedHero, you can finally invest in promising companies that have no more than an idea and a prototype on the table, as well as in mature companies where your investment can be closely followed and looked after.

Invest & earn
You are only a few steps away from high-yield investments into high-growth companies. Earn from regular dividend payments and realistic exit scenarios.
Raise capital
Are you looking for a fast and easy method for attracting capital? Do you have a business that is growing fast? Do you have an investment plan, a transparent company structure and the ability to distribute dividends to our investors?
