Seedrs are crossing the Atlantic after acquiring Junction Investments Alternative finance in the UK is set to double in the next 12 months and a big part of that is the success of equity crowdfunding platforms like Seedrs. The startup has gone from strength to strength in recent years and last month announced it had acquired US company Junction Investments and planned to expand to the States.
