The end of the year brings with it balance sheets and analysis on the 12 months just passed: for Mamacrowd it was, quite simply, a fantastic 2017.

Thanks to our investors and the faithful participation of our community, which continues to grow day by day, we have strengthened our leadership in the equity crowdfunding market: we have exceeded 6 million euros of accessions on the total Italian market of 11.5 million euros* (*total amount of campaigns successfully closed as of 29/12/17 - source crowdfundingbuzz).

This result was possible thanks to the quality of the offers proposed on the platform, to the innovative startups and SMEs that have conducted very successful campaigns, to the network of 39 partners that support us in the pre-selection of the most innovative and promising projects.

One of the most successful is Green Energy Storage, which has reached a total of 1. 2 million euros of subscriptions compared to a maximum capital increase of 1 million (439% overfunding): the largest Italian fundraising ever.
But that's not all. Among the campaigns that raised the most money were The Digital Box (€824,000 - 275% overfunding) and Graphene-XT (€530,000 against €759,000 of requests).

And then that of Family Nation (€400,000 collected against €514,000 of requests - 643% overfunding) which ended in a few days due to an excess of events.
Funding rounds, these, which are part of the general ranking of the most important operations of the second half of 2017 (the only ones organized through equity crowdfunding).

Again, the awards we received: in May, at theInvestment & Trading Forum in Rimini,we won the FintechAge Award as the best Italian equity crowdfunding platform and in December the Special Award Crowdfunding at the recent Open Summit 2017 of StartupItalia!, an event that awarded the most promising innovative companies.
Without forgetting all those who talked about us, the organizers of the 50 events we attended, the hundreds of teams we told about the potential of alternative capital raising, the thousands of users who in these months managed their investments through the platform's features.

2017 was the year of the definitive affirmation of equity crowdfunding in Italy: as we write, capital raising has tripled compared to the previous year, the number of investors has more than quadrupled, online offers have almost doubled.
For 2018, further innovations have already been announced, including the opening of the tool to all SMEs(not only innovative ones) which will help the sector to become stronger and to attract the interest of more and more unlisted companies and new investors.

The Mamacrowd team is ready for new challenges to live together.
We thank you for a fantastic 2017 and we look forward to seeing you in 2018!
