KPMG UK has partnered with InvestDen, an equity and debt crowdfunding platform. Through the partnership, KPMG UK will offer advice to businesses raising capital through InvestDen.

KPMG head of entreprise for London region Ben McDonald said: ""In our conversations with entrepreneurs, we hear time and again that the funding landscape for small businesses can be complex and difficult to navigate, something which is spurring the growth of alternative finance providers which are able to provide clarity and simplicity in their offerings. We see crowdfunding as one such alternative source of capital for ambitious businesses, which is why we're delighted to enter into this alliance with InvestDen."
