Meet Crowdberry

Crowdberry is an investment platform that allows private investors to invest directly in specific companies and real estate projects. Having carried out 34 investment transactions and concluded more than 800 contracts, we have successfully closed or currently manage investments amounting to more than €50 million in the companies and real estate sectors.

We are helping to change the investment market. We enable investors to take a stake in Czech and Slovak companies alongside professionals. We help them create long-term value and thus contribute to the overall growth of the domestic economy.

We founded Crowdberry in 2015 in Bratislava in partnership with Tatra banka’s private banking group. Since then, each of us has been working to ensure that Czech and Slovak companies can find not only new customers but also co-owners and growth capital, so that their most loyal customers might co-own their favourite brands and help them succeed.

We are professionalizing the investment environment in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. We adhere to the principles of transparency, fairness and mutual accountability of company founders and investors. We support direct local investment.

Crowdberry Investment Management

Crowdberry Investment Management

We are the manager of an investment fund with assets worth €23.2 million, which supports young Czech and Slovak companies with international potential. Crowdberry also enables private investors to invest capital via the platform in startups that have already received seed capital from the Crowdberry fund. 

Crowdberry Property Investors

Crowdberry Property Investors

We search for undervalued or newly developed Czech and Slovak real estate projects, across all segments, with the aim of using their unrevealed potential to create above-average returns. By investing through us, you can share in the kinds of profits not normally available to private investors. Transparency is in Crowdberry’s DNA – we can pull back the curtain of the real estate market to reveal the inner workings of the industry and how to share in the highest level of profits.

Our partners

We have a stable of trusted and renowned partners that help us accomplish our mission. Crowdberry has been collaborating with Tatra banka’s private banking group since 2015. We have also been the preferred choice of participant in the LEAF programme for Slovaks studying and working abroad. Each year, we work with the best and brightest students from prestigious universities such as St Andrews, Warwick, Oxford, Cambridge, Trinity College and University College Institute in Paris.
