Finnest is a corporate finance platform that provides established SMEs with alternative access to the capital market and offers investors a key to private placements of financially sound enterprises.
The company has developed a unique combination of corporate financing and crowd-investing. The system is derived from book-building mechanisms known from corporate bonds and combines them with marketing and loyalty effects found in the crowd. Via a reverse blind auction, investors offer corporations an investment and fix the annual interest rates themselves.
At the end of the book-building phase, the companies select the most attractive offers with 1 click. Finnest was founded by ex-banker Günther Lindenlaub and ex-eBay manager Joerg Bartussek in 2014. It is currently headquartered in Vienna, Austria.
