Jerusalem, Israel December 16, 2014: OurCrowd was named the top equity crowdfunding platform in KPMG’s recently published The 50 Best Fintech Innovators Report, reaching the number #22 spot overall. This report, which provides deep analysis of the rapidly evolving fintech industry worldwide, identified 4 other equity crowdfunding platforms in the top 50 including: CircleUp (#23), AngelList (#35), Crowdcube (#46) and Seedrs (#47).
In less than two years after launch, OurCrowd has raised over $90 million for 55 of its portfolio companies and is now the world’s leading equity crowdfunding platform.
In the same list of innovators, KPMG also named a company that is currently raising funds on OurCrowd: Borro, an online lending platform who at #8, came in just behind the two recent IPO success stories of Lending Club (#6), and OnDeck (#7). Borro is a UK-US based, online asset-backed lending platform with an investor roster that includes the same early investors in leading fintech innovators such as Lending Club, Zopa, Wealthfront, and Funding Circle.
“We are very proud of our ranking on the KPMG Best Fintech Innovators list,” said OurCrowd CEO, Jon Medved. “Our platform is indeed breaking new ground by raising significant sums of capital for leading companies and harnessing the power of the crowd to build them.”
Realizing the growing impact of the fintech sector, OurCrowd has several portfolio companies in the space in addition to Borro such as BillGuard, a leader in crowdsourced credit card fraud detection, and CredFi, a Big Data platform serving the CRE Finance market.
