Spreds is a leading European investment platform
We allow every investor to finance companies that matter to them and improve the world around them by creating jobs and shaping our society.
What is Crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is a collective investment in a business or product. There are four types of crowdfunding:
Companies request funds, and in exchange, crowd investors receive a stake (Notes) in the company.
Investors loan money to a company and are repaid over a period of time.
Charities collect non-repayable donations for a good cause.
Investors receive a gift or service in exchange for their investment.
Spreds focuses on equity and lending crowdfunding.

The Spreds Story
Spreds was created in July 2011 under the name MyMicroInvest by four professionals motivated by idealist principles. Since then, the platform has experienced many changes, but the biggest change since its creation happened at the beginning of 2018. After a long and fruitful collaboration of more than 6 years, MyMicroInvest and the investment fund Inventures (created in parallel) decided to pursue their individual paths. Sharing until then the same legal entity, the same CEO and the same team, the companies reached a level of maturity that enabled them to evolve separately.
MyMicroInvest took advantage of this decision to change its name. By renaming the company Spreds, we chose to make our strategy clearer, simpler and more powerful than ever before. Spreds’ mission is to finance entrepreneurial dreams, to feed the European job market and to motivate people to collectively support tomorrow’s companies.
