MyVAN helps Rentivo raise over £360k on Crowdcube

Posted on January 18th, 2017

Jan 2017: Working with the management of Rentivo, MyVAN has helped fund Rentivo’s recent fund raise on Crowdcube. By pump-priming the investment on the platform, we believe this was crucial in obtaining further funding from the crowd. This further re-enforces our view that crowdfunding can work very well with angel funding and act as a capital multiplier.  The management of Rentivo were particularly active and skilled in ensuring this fund raise – which overfunded by 30% – was a success.
