Crowdestor Review


Crowdestor is a business crowdfunding platform from Estonia. As an investor you can fund small and medium enterprises, sustain their growth or restructure their debts. The plattform does not work with loan originators. You need to pick your investments yourself. Most projects are from the Baltics, but not only. Although returns are high, auto-invest and diversification is missed. Crowdestor is considered very high risk and opinions diverge about this platform. On one hand it has a considerable fan base and active community. On the other hand, many investors complain about extremely risky and often unsuccessful projects. We only recommend experienced investors to get started with this platform and see it as an experimental choice. In our opinion risk overweights profit. But this should be finally up to personal judgement.

Instant Cash-Out
Available as: Crowdestor Flex

In July 2021, crowdestor launched crowdestor Flex – a new investment product where they promise stable 12÷ returns accredited daily to the investor's account. Many could be paid out instantly. Already in August 2021, crowdestor stopped advertising the Flex feature. Access is not possible anymore. Reasons mentioned within the P2P community were that offering such product would be conflicting with financial regulations, as they would offer a sort of deposit account being rewarded with interest.
