As you all know we have announced our amazing crowdfunding campaign with Crowdcube a little earlier in the day. If you haven’t yet seen our posts, you can check them out HERE, for the community forum and HERE, for the website.
We also wanted to share the FAQs for this endeavour right here, on the community forum. However, you can also find them on the registration page.
Who can invest?
You must be over 18 years old and legally entitled to invest. You’ll also need to be a resident of the UK or a country where you may legally receive financial promotions of the nature provided. See more details on the Crowdcube website.
When does the campaign go live?
On the 28th of September! Register your interest above for updates and priority access.

As a reward for their loyalty and support, Wirex customers who have registered an interest will enjoy an exclusive 1 hour window to invest before the campaign is open to the public.
What will the valuation be?

What is equity crowdfunding?
Equity crowdfunding allows a large pool of people to back a business they believe in. When you invest in equity you buy a percentage or share of a business. You can read more about investing on the Crowdcube website.
What is Crowdcube?
Crowdcube is a crowdfunding platform that enables businesses to attract investment from professionals, venture capital firms and everyday people. They have facilitated crowdfunding rounds for Monzo, Revolut, Eden Project, BrewDog and more.
Why is Wirex crowdfunding?
It’s been a wild ride since Wirex was formed in 2014. 6 years, 6 global offices and 3m+ registered customers later, Wirex has grown beyond all expectation thanks to the loyalty and support of our dedicated and discerning customers around the world. What better way to show our gratitude than to give our fatithful Wirexers an opportunity to own part of the business they love? That way, anyone can be a part of the Wirex success story moving forwards.
How do I make a return on my investment?
A return is made via a liquidity event; for example, Wirex being acquired by another company or floating on the stock market at a higher value, or a secondary market transaction. Just remember that investing in a startup business carries significant risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of your investment and dilution.
What exclusive rewards do investors get access to?
What should I do now?
