In the panorama of European crowdfunding platforms, those authorized in Italy (and also abroad) will have to compete with some giants, among which the crowdinvesting platform USA Republic must certainly be included.
The company released its 2023 “ Annual Report ” which notes that it has raised $2.6 billion since inception. The collection also includes that of the British equity crowdfunding platform Seedrs, which Republic acquired in 2021.

With these data, USA Republic with its branches constitutes perhaps the largest crowdfunding platform in the world
With a community of over 3 million people from over 150 different countries, USA Republic has transformed itself from a platform for funding seed-stage ventures into a diverse ecosystem of financing and investment opportunities, which, among other things, also offers a private deal space for sophisticated investors, as well as offerings in real estate, games and more.
Furthermore, through Seedrs, Republic promotes its collection in Europe and, therefore, the possibility for issuers to raise funds in two continents, thanks to the authorization obtained under the new ECSPR or European Regulation on crowdfunding service providers.
Seedrs has played a significant role in the European startup ecosystem for over a decade, supporting businesses from more than 20 countries on the continent. For Jeff Kelisky, CEO of Seedrs , this evolution, while not revolutionary, represents a pivotal moment for the company and the global startup ecosystem.
To date, Seedrs has had to operate in individual European markets on a country basis, facing complex and restrictive rules relating to marketing and sales, particularly when dealing directly with investors. This new regulation, through the establishment of a unified regulatory approach, levels the playing field for the entire sector and lays the foundation for a prosperous sector, capable of supporting thriving European startup hubs.
The authorization obtained, according to Jeff Kelisky, offers several opportunities.
First, this new regulation makes it much easier for Seedrs and more incentivizing for seed companies to improve the quality of the offerings and services that the platform offers to its community of investors. Furthermore, companies from all over Europe will have access to capital from investors beyond their national borders.
Secondly, Seedrs will be able to offer European investors unparalleled opportunities to invest in businesses that are building the products and services that will shape the future. The new regulatory framework, in fact, significantly simplifies the process of improving the services offered to the investor community.
Finally, Seedrs, as part of Republic, which recently acquired the British platform and is the largest private investment platform in the world, will have a leading role in building a truly global financial future and democratic, ensuring that everyone, everywhere in the world, has access to high-quality investment and ownership opportunities.
The company also issued “Republic Note,” a digital asset that offers investors the opportunity to participate in issuers’ capital gains raised on the platform. Republic Note’s market capitalization now stands at $133 million and is tradable on INX, a digital exchange that Republic owns.
Unfortunately, USA Republic does not include its financial performance in its annual report and there is no indication of the performance of its portfolio companies for investors. Key metrics that Seedrs had published in the past.
