Happy birthday to Crowdcube, which is today celebrating its first year of trading.

The crowdfunding platform was the first equity-based model in the world when it launched last February and has facilitated investments totalling £2,352,000 in small businesses within 12 months.

Eleven businesses have secured seed or growth capital through the platform to date – including Crowdcube itself – which is expected to create an estimated 246 new jobs within the next three years.

In November 2011, Crowdcube hosted the world’s first £1m investment through crowdfunding, positioning the business as a leader in its field.

Last month the start-up’s founders were invited to Number 10 to advise on the implementation of the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme and they also launched their first white-label partner site, with Startups.

Crowdcube has created an infographic to celebrate its first birthday.
