Only businesses operating via a BV – the Dutch equivalent of a LTD, a Besloten Vennootschap (BV) – can receive funding via equity crowdfunding. If your business does not currently operate via a BV then you must convert from your current legal entity to a BV first.
For example, if you operate via a VOF – the Dutch equivalent of a general partnership – you must convert to a BV before you can access funding through our platform. This is because it is not possible to issue shares in a legal operating entity such as a VOF.
Existing businesses will be asked to provide a Chamber of Commerce number to check the legal entity.
