About Us

Crowdestates was set up to help community-led projects get funding. We want to support the building of these projects and want to allow communities and social impact investors to invest in property projects that have a purpose.

Crowdestates specialises in secured lending on property projects with a community or social benefit and we believe that investors can put their money to good use and help developers make great buildings. Our great team has over 50 years experience across property, banking and technology.

We’re based in London Bridge at our great new offices overlooking the Shard, so feel free to stop by to tell us all about your project.
