Two crowdfunding pioneers
OneCrowd Loans GmbH
Solution for digital acquisition of debt capital via OneCrowd platforms
OneCrowd Loans GmbH operates crowdfunding platforms where start-ups and investors come together. Stakeholders must have full confidence that payments will be processed. Therefore, cooperation with an established payment institution was essential.
The solution and cooperation
OneCrowd has been working with secupay AG from the very beginning. The payment institution services all three of the company's brands: Seedmatch, Econeers and Mezzany. As one of the pioneers in the crowdfunding sector, secupay has developed a process specifically tailored to OneCrowd. All transactions are automated, including the allocation of individual investments to projects. In addition, the payment service provider subsequently supports the participating start-ups by automating the processing of interest and redemption payments.
"As an important partner, secupay ensures the smooth technical processing of payments. The payment service provider is also a trustee – a neutral entity that all parties can trust without reservation. An important factor in this regard is that secupay processes the payments via German escrow accounts," says Johannes Ranscht, Managing Director of OneCrowd Loans GmbH, about the collaboration.
About OneCrowd Loans GmbH
Crowdfunding by many instead of venture capital by a few. There are hundreds of young companies in Germany with innovative ideas – why shouldn't everyone get the chance to invest in them? This is the thinking of the Seedmatch-makers. As Germany's first crowd investing platform, Seedmatch democratized investment opportunities in start-ups and growth companies in 2011. And the company's development is remarkable: Since the launch of the platform, around 75,200 users have already invested more than 65 million euros.
