More about SeedInvest:

SeedInvest is the creator of, a venture/startup equity investment platform, & aims to be the largest online private capital marketplace in the world. SeedInvest believes that private markets should not be closed, opaque, & accessible only by a wealthy few, but by all entrepreneurs & investors regardless of geography, access, demographics, or background. SeedInvest was instrumental in the passage of the 2012 JOBS Act, which changed 80-year-old U.S. securities laws to make it possible for entrepreneurs to raise capital over the Internet, & has since worked actively with the SEC & other regulators to re-invent the legacy investment banking & private capital market rails that have remained unchanged for nearly a century. SeedInvest is in the early innings of having a bit of private investment in everyones investment portfolio & believes its growing suite of products will give rise to a new generation of investors & startups that will participate in a vibrant, liquid, & accessible private capital market unlike ever before.
