Crowdfunding FAQ

 

Why is Learnlife crowdfunding?

We believe systemic change in education is only possible through community and are looking for partners excited about our mission and growth. This round will enable us to expand our Learnhubs, programmes and our technology to support learners globally. 


What is equity crowdfunding?

Equity crowdfunding is the process whereby people (i.e. the ‘crowd’) invest in an early-stage unlisted company (a company that is not listed on a stock market) in exchange for shares in that company. A shareholder has partial ownership of a company and stands to profit on an Exit Event (i.e. IPO, merger or sale) should the company continue to perform well and increase in value. The opposite is also true, so if the company fails investors can lose some, or all, of their investment.

What is Crowdcube?

Crowdcube is a crowdfunding platform that enables start-ups and scale-ups to issue shares to and raise money from a wide range of everyday and experienced investors who want to share in the future of companies they believe in.

Does registering commit me to investing?

Not at all. Registering means you’ll have the exclusive opportunity to invest in our private round, as once we’ve reached our maximum target we’ll close the crowdfunding round.

Once you register, you'll be directed to our private crowdfunding page, and also receive a special link by email in case you want to access the page later.

What benefits do I get as a shareholder? 

Investing in private companies is a long term capital investment that will help us grow the company. A return on investment is typically made via a liquidity event such as an IPO of the company, or if the company is acquired by another company. You can learn more about investor returns on Crowdcube here.

Can I sell or transfer my shares?

You can express your interest in selling your shares in a company via Cubex, which enables you to discover, research, and express an interest in buying or selling shares in private European companies. If enough interest is expressed in a given business, Crowdcube will seek to facilitate a transaction, and you will be notified when a sale goes live.

What happens after I invest?

Once the pitch reaches its target and closes to further funding, the completion process starts. At that point, all investors will receive a copy of the Articles of Association via email and will be informed of the cooling off period. Once the cooling off period, which is generally no less than seven days, has expired, the payment collections process starts and then electronic share certificates are issued.
