Our team of lawyers in Spain is able to help answer your questions about the alternative finance market in the country and the most important regulations in place.
Crowdfunding in Spain
Equity crowdfunding is seen by many entrepreneurs and startup owners in Spain as a very convenient alternative to traditional financing. This method allows startups to sell shares in the company in exchange for capital. The investors who provide capital will share the earning of the company, when or if they occur.
Investors in Spain who set up a crowdfunding platform provide access to this needed capital. The startup interested in acquiring capital will request crowdfunding services and the terms for repayment will be set up as needed. Instead of selling shares in the startup, another method is to give our regular interest payments to the investor, until the loan is paid in full.
Entrepreneurs who want to enter the crowdfunding market should perform a thorough market research and have a business plan for their new crowdfunding company. Some of these platforms provide general equity crowdfunding services while others offer theirs only to companies or projects in selected business fields.
