What is equity crowdfunding?

Equity crowdfunding is the process whereby people (i.e. the ‘crowd’) invest in an early-stage unlisted company (a company that is not listed on a stock market) in exchange for shares in that company. A shareholder has partial ownership of a company and stands to profit should the company do well. The opposite is also true, so if the company fails investors can lose some, or all, of their investment.

Investment tax reliefs

To offset some of the risk involved with investing in early-stage companies, the Irish government offers tax reliefs for eligible investors in qualifying companies via the Employment and Investment Incentive Scheme otherwise known as EIIS. The scheme offers some of the most generous tax incentives for eligible investors. 

Green Crowd specialise in early-stage equity with a focus on renewable energy and sustainable infrastructure projects.

There are no fees for the investor to invest through Green Crowd. Your full investment is invested into the project.
