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.”
