Scottish Fintech ShareIn not a start-up anymore
ShareIn the, the Edinburgh-based technology and compliance solution for online unlisted investment, has just announced some exciting news:
Profitable year-end to October 2017 (£700k revenue, 3 times more than the previous year)
Increase in staff – from 7 to 17
New clients – 3 times more
A new website to highlight recent success
Work with a new crowdfunding platform called Triodos
Collaboration as a key success factor
One of the reasons behind ShareIn’s success is the solutions they’ve developed for their new clients. Amongst the latest ones is the Triodos Crowdfunding platform the first crowdfunding platform launched by a UK bank.
Andrew Pickett, Co-founder of ShareIn says:
“Working with Triodos, who are very well respected in the ethical finance sector and have raised more than £130 million to fund over 50 impact projects in the past 15 years, is a fantastic win for ShareIn.”
ShareIn are also working with Lendahand Ethex, raising over £2m for solar projects in Africa. With Mongoose Crowd they help who fund community energy projects with renewable sources.
ShareIn are the living proof that diversity doesn’t have to be obtained by design. They’ve hired more women than men by solely focussing on skills and talents.
ShareIn’s CEO, Jude Cook says:
“Andrew and I are really proud of the brilliant team that we’ve been able to build. It’s quite unusual in a tech business to have more women in the company than men. We always hire the best person for the job but we’re lucky that great women keep applying. 12 of the 17 team members are women. We’ve got such a healthy mix of experience and nationality that makes ShareIn a very exciting place to work.”
Well done to Jude, Andrew and their team and we’re looking forward to more success stories soon.
