Danish-Dutch founded startup accelerator Startupbootcamp has successfully closed the first IPO of an accelerator program in the world raising €2.325.000. The funds were raised via the Amsterdam-based Rabo&Crowd platform powered by Rabobank and innovative Dutch startup Nxchange.

On Rabo&Crowd, entrepreneurs can crowdfinance and issue tradable bonds with technology provided by Nxchange, a decentralised exchange for tokenized securities and digital assets with a regulated market licence issued by the Netherlands Ministry of Finance, and under the supervision of the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) and the Dutch Central Bank (DNB).

In a Linkedin post today, the Nxchange team noted:

“From the 16th December, all the certificates are tradable on our secondary market. For those who participated in the public offering, enjoy your unique Angel investor ticket.”

Co-founded and headed by Amsterdam-based Marleen Evertz – who spent half a decade at Deloitte and Optiver in structured finance and capital markets, Nxchange offers the following:

  • Decentralised exchange
    You no longer need to trade in a central marketplace. Transactions are settled in real-time and the exchange can be used 24/7 directly from any web-environment.
  • Regulation and security
    A Regulated Market and Multilateral Trading Facility with all required licenses provided by the Dutch Ministry of Finance and the Dutch Authority of Financial Markets.
  • Community building
    Invest in the market of your interest, be part of various investment communities and communicate directly with the issuers.
  • Hybrid funding possibilities
    Access hybrid funding facilities where professional and institutional finance is combined with retail investment opportunities.

Startupbootcamp has programs in major startup hubs including London, New York, Singapore, Berlin, Amsterdam, and many others, – they provide both a global reach and industry-focus to their portfolio companies.

By holding events in more than 100 cities each year they support the world’s most talented founders with hands-on mentorship and access to key industry connections, as well as take part in all the major technology and industry conferences around the globe.
