Andy Murray, the number one male tennis player in the world, has backed several start-up companies on crowdfunding platform Seedrs.
The tennis player has invested undisclosed amounts in tech start-up Den and helmet company Morpher, increasing his portfolio on the platform to more than 20 companies.
Den, a self-professed smart home system which promises to transform “the way people use light switches and plug sockets around the world” has raised over £1.45m on Seedrs so far.

Andy Murray also sits on Seedr’s Advisory Board along with Lyft co-founder and CEO Logan Green, Editor-at-large of TechCrunch Mike Butcher and other tech heavy-hitters.
