The funding round was lead by previous backers, Mustard Seed, who also brought from their membership an exciting list of new investors, including financial services experts: Peter Sands, former Global CEO, Standard Chartered and Mike Rees, former Deputy CEO, Standard Chartered. Other investors included Brendan Bradley, former executive, Eurex, and investors from the technology community including William Tunstall-Pedoe, founder of Evi Technologies, the Internet search company acquired by Amazon.

Crowdsurfer's Chief Operating Officer, Emmi Nicholl, said "This investment, particularly from such highly respected, experienced individuals, is yet another vote of confidence in Crowdsurfer, our data intelligence product and our vision of a data-rich crowd finance industry."

Crowdsurfer continues to build momentum at a very pivotal time for the crowd finance sector, bringing much-needed transparency and data intelligence to this disruptive fintech industry.
