Equity crowdfunding

Companies request funds, and in exchange, crowd investors receive a stake, or Notes.

Loan crowdfunding

Companies request a loan, and crowd investors are repaid over a period of time.

Donation crowdfunding

Charities collect non-repayable donations for a good cause.

Reward crowdfunding

Investors receive a gift or service in exchange for their investment.

The Spreds Story

Spreds was created in July 2011 under the name MyMicroInvest by four professionals motivated by idealist principles. The four founders possessed unique backgrounds: José Zurstrassen (Skynet and Keytrade Bank founder) was the entrepreneur of the team, Olivier de Duve, the investment banker, Charles-Albert de Radzitzky, the corporate finance expert and Guillaume Desclée, the microfinance marketer. In 2012, Gilles van der Meerschen decided to join the team after a management career at Caterpillar. After the departure of Guillaume Desclée for health reasons in 2016, José Zurstrassen (current member of the Board) left soon after but remained member of the Board. MyMicroInvest lived the biggest change since its creation in 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. Learn more about our team.
