Crowd-trading platform Huddlestock has raised $1.5m in a seed round of funding.
The capital comes from a number of Norwegian family offices and private investors.
The investment is performance-based with Huddlestock receiving half now and the rest in 10 months if it meets a target share price.
The company aims to democratise stock market investment by allowing ordinary consumers to invest as a group in stocks chosen by Huddlestockâ€™s team of professional investors.
The Oslo and London-based company says the round is the largest ever taken on by an early-stage Norwegian fintech startup.
The round values Huddlestock at $13m.
The company plans to launch in the UK initially before rolling out globally.
It also intends to partner with other fintech startups, such as robo-advisors, to benefit from the added technology.
