Andy Murray Makes Multiple Investments on Crowdfunding Platform
Tennis champion and world number two Andy Murray announced today that he has made multiple investments on Seedrs, the largest equity crowdfunding platform in Europe.
Murray, who joined the Seedrs advisory board in June, identified three British businesses he wanted to back on the crowdfunding platform, and has invested an undisclosed amount into all three. Murray plans to make further investments as part of his strategic relationship with Seedrs.
London-based, healthier eating chain Tossed has now exceeded its £750,000 target, as part of their Seedrs round, and is currently in overfunding. Tossed is on a mission to show that healthy eating isn’t boring with a range of fresh made-to-order salads, wraps, smoothies and hot food.
Murray has also made investments in Trillenium, a leading builder of 3D virtual reality shops, which has been backed by UK success story ASOS and has raised over £225,000 on Seedrs so far; and the Fuel Ventures Fund, founded by award-winning entrepreneur Mark Pearson of myvouchercodes.co.uk which raised £549,900 on Seedrs as part of their overall £30million venture fund.
Murray said about these investments, “I’m excited to be investing in these driven entrepreneurs and their businesses on Seedrs. It’s important to me that I back people who I believe have the same dedication, hunger and professional standards as myself and always strive to be their best.”
