Cadia Startup Exchange gives a lead to the rest of the world by offering its own shares on its own secondary market. Now you can become a shareholder in the most innovative equity crowdfunding platform in the world.

Cadia Startup Exchange is the world's first equity crowdfunding platform with a 24/7 secondary market for startups, small and medium sized businesses and unaccredited investors.  The platform offers a solution for startup entrepreneurs to gather initial capital for their business and to Small & Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to finance their latest ideas or expansion plans by selling shares of their companies to unaccredited investors worldwide. Cadia Startup Exchange adds to the equity crowdfunding business model a fully operating secondary market allowing businesses to be as close as possible to having a real IPO.
On the platform’s secondary market investors can trade their shares and seek exit and cash out from the investment much earlier than any other competitive business model offers (loans, VC funds, regular equity funding, perks-based equity crowdfunding etc).

Cadia Startup Exchange is the world’s first equity crowdfunding platform with a 24/7 secondary market for startup entrepreneurs, small & medium-sized enterprises and unaccredited investors. We are an online platform that serves as a meeting point for companies seeking funding and unaccredited investors seeking projects to fund.

We know traditional crowdfunding platforms and equity crowdfunding platforms. Traditional crowdfunding platforms give to investors very limited options to get return from startup entrepreneurs’ businesses. 

Generally crowdfunding platforms are structured in such a way that investors are not given the chance to receive in return for their money anything but a small present or cheap service.  

The problem that arises is that, on the one side, people who invest do not get back equity of the company. On the other side, after the end of the crowdfunding campaign most of the startup entrepreneurs end up to their ears in debt because for the collected money they need to give back the promised goods or services. Such a situation can cause immense disruptions to the business. In practice, the founders may need to invest much bigger capital in the business just to be able to satisfy the needs of these who took part in the crowdfunding campaign.

Existing equity crowdfunding platforms give opportunity to the investors to purchase shares of startup entrepreneurs’ company. And this is it. This is the end of the story.  

The most logical questions which appear here are: How to sell this shares to somebody else? How to supervise the startup entrepreneur? How to deal with thousands of shareholders? Who runs their shareholders book?

Cadia Startup Exchange off­ers a solution for startups to gather initial capital for their business and to small & medium-sized enterprises to finance their latest ideas or expansion plans through selling shares of their companies to investors.

Crowdfunding investments are investments in private companies that (as stated above) lack short-term liquidity, unlike public companies listed on stock exchanges. Crowdfunding investments usually come early in a company’s life and, hence, are long-term investments with long-term exit potential.

This is where Cadia Startup Exchange comes in with a game-changing Unique Selling Proposition – to this business model we add a fully operating stock market between the investors on our platform. This allows businesses to be as close as possible to having a real IPO, while the transaction costs for it are far lower than those on any other existing stock exchange. On the platform’s secondary market people who invested in the startups can trade their shares and seek exit and cash out from the investment much earlier than any other competitive business model offers (loans, VC funds, regular equity funding, perks-based equity crowdfunding etc.). The main advantage comes from the fact that investors can exit long before the product or service that the startup develops is ready. This flexibility benefits both sides, but it is available at their own risk of speculation. 

Our specific business field is equity crowdfunding (as seen in green in the table above) – investors will fund startups in exchange for ownership of shares. Crowdfund investing (CFI) is the investment alternative to pledge-based crowdfunding. This term, which describes securities-based equity and debt fundraising through crowdfunding platforms, has recently emerged as an alternative to more traditional funding tools such as bank loans, angel or venture capital (VC) investments for financing entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Projections for the size of the crowdfund investing market range from $40 billion to as much as $300 billion over the coming years depending on the level of enabling regulation adopted by governments.

Modern equity crowdfunding is relatively young; it started in the UK in 2006, spread to the US in 2007 and took off in China in 2009. It is also still small, amounting to around $6 billion in capital origination. Nevertheless, this industry is growing rapidly. There are two main factors contributing to the rapid rise of equity crowdfunding:

  • Technological innovation;
  • The financial crisis of 2008.

As explained, in this model lenders are able to invest online small sums of money in business start-ups by buying an equity stake in their chosen company. They take on the risk of the company failing but look to receive a return in the form of a dividend stream or capital gain. This is similar to buying stock in a start-up company or a SME. The platforms are funded through a fee of a percentage of the amount raised through the platform by the company looking for investment. There is no secondary market available for this type of start-up investment, making equity crowdfunding particularly illiquid. There are very few equity crowdfunding platforms due to the strict regulatory requirements that are in place to regulate public equity offerings.
By law, most platforms can offer this type capital raising to sophisticated investors only (however defined by the jurisdiction they operate under) or to a limited number of individual investors. These investments may also require the drawing up of a prospectus in some jurisdictions.

Cadia Startup Exchange is a unique equity crowdfunding service without existing analogy in the world by far. As the rest of the platforms in the industry we serve as a meeting point for companies and investors. However, we take the process a huge step further by adding a secondary market where additional earnings can be made for businesses and for their shareholders.
  • As crowdfunding is generally a growing segment, Cadia Startup Exchange can ride the wave and win from this early life cycle of the market  
  • Our unique selling proposition can attract early adopters from fields of stock trading, Forex or other areas that have not been before interested in crowdfunding 
  • Having access to numerous startup ideas, we can notice trends for future world business development
  • If we manage to promote our USP enough, we can benefit in the long term of the fact that we are first on the market with this startup stock exchange model
Cadia Startup Exchange is the world’s first equity crowdfunding platform with a secondary market which targets both startup companies and small & medium-sized enterprises. The unique nature of the opportunity Cadia Startup Exchange puts on the table brings innovation to small business financing on a global scale by expanding the crowdfunding business model and taking it to the next level.  

Benefits for Startups:
  • No fees for start
  • Opportunity to reach investors worldwide
  • Unique chance to sell shares of your company
  • Getting financial injection directly to your business
Benefits for Small & Medium-sized Enterprises:
  • Raising additional capital by selling shares of the company
  • Realization future expansion plans
  • Arranging relationships with investors from other crowdfunding platforms
  • Global visibility for your business
  • Opportunity to reach investors worldwide
Benefits for Investors:
  • Secure investment supervised by Financial Conduct Authority
  • Buying and selling shares anytime
  • Monthly accounting & financial reports
  • Dividend payouts in compliance with EU regulations
  • Simple upload/withdraw from the platform
  • Supervisory board for companies into which you invest to guarantee security
Cadia Startup Exchange offers two kinds of services:

1. Entrepreneurs
It is a platform where entrepreneurs can describe and popularize their startup ideas in front of potential investors.

2. Unaccredited Investors
There is a fully automated 24/7 secondary market for unaccredited investors to trade shares of the funded startups and of listed SMEs.
For both these activities Cadia Startup Exchange charges service fees. We are charging a success fee from the collected resources of every completed startup funding. We also charge transaction fees for upload and trading on our platform. These fees are meant to cover our own transaction costs (with banks, accountants, lawyers, etc.) plus a margin for us as a business.

We are totally aware of the countless options investors will look since some of them sponsor. Some speak. Some are looking to deploy funds. Some are looking for funds to deploy. No matter what we will work with each other to make sure they get the maximum return from their time at the event stages.
    Speakers at the event will be more than 800 and those are one of the greatest influencers worldwide. Celebrity names include the Vice President of Facebook Dan Rose, Ed Catmull - president of Pixar, Drew Houston from Dropbox and many many more to attract the attention of both startup businesses and investors.

    EU Regulations Set To Catch Up With The Rise Of Equity Crowdfunding

    The equity crowdfunding industry has been at the top of the gun for the past two years with a projected market that will be doubling each year in the next decade. This has attracted interest from investors, businesses and entrepreneurs all over the world and now even the institutions are turning their heads.

    In February The European Union published a “Green Paper” on Building a Capital Markets Union for the broader European community.  The ambitious goals are laudable but the challenge is high. While in the United States, and other countries around the globe, SME’s are the engine of growth.  The report states that in comparison to the United States, medium sized companies received five times more funding than in the EU.  This is a profound problem and is indicative of a broken capital markets and equity culture. In presentation delivered in December of last year Dr. Christian Katz, CEO of Six Swiss Exchange, stated that “Europe faces a funding gap of € 2 trillion by 2020” highlighting a challenge as equity markets are not good at funding SME’s.

    Compared to much of the world Europe is still largely dependent upon banks for funding but they have not been immune to growing regulatory impediments to actively innovating to provide the capital necessary to fuel economic growth.

    The Green Paper is a part of a three month consultation that seeks feedback from all stakeholders. From politicians to those who work in the capital markets (including the entrepreneurs that want to innovate finance), the EU is asking for input. The net result is described as plan to incorporate a Capital Markets Union by 2019.

    CadiaSE, as founding member of the European Equity Crowdfunding Association, is taking active part in this activity. All members of the EECA were invited to produce a number of recommendations and directions for the EU in order to direct their efforts in a way that will benefit all sides. This will happen in a series of meetings and conferences in the next two months.

    Currently, equity crowdfunding platforms are pioneers in their area and are often hindered by walls of regulations that were never designed to control such type of innovative activity. This is set to change in the coming years and CadiaSE is proud to be a part of this process.

    We will keep all our stakeholders updated on what’s going on in this dialogue between the EU regulatory organs and the business. This is a monumental step for our industry so stay tuned!
