Venture Capital

The SeedInvest Selections Fund is currently investing $200,000 alongside each company that successfully raises capital on SeedInvest under Regulation D. The fund is targeting investments in 50 companies over the next two years and its limited partners are looking for opportunities to make strategic co-investments and follow-on investments.

Angel Investing

Investing in startups used to be reserved for just venture capitalists and high-connected angel investors. But SeedInvest is now enabling anyone to invest alongside venture capital firms and angel groups and access startup investments for the very first time. SeedInvest helps filter out the noise. Our team is comprised of former professional investors who screen all companies which apply.

Equity Crowdfunding

As a result of the JOBS Act, companies can now raise from anyone up to $50 million under Regulation A+ and up to $1 million under Regulation CF. These new exemptions open up investing to 240+ million Americans who previously could not invest and allows SeedInvest to help startups turn their most ardent supporters and customers into passionate investors for the first time.

Our Story

Ryan Feit and James Han founded SeedInvest in 2012. Shocked by how difficult it was for their Wharton classmates to raise capital for their startups, Ryan and James joined a movement to change 80-year-old securities laws to make it easier for entrepreneurs to raise capital online. During the following year, they became instrumental in arguably the most significant change to U.S. securities laws in our lifetime: the passage of the JOBS Act.

Ryan and James professionally invested in and financed companies across technology, consumer, and other major market sectors while at Wellspring Capital, Francisco Partners, Lehman Brothers, and Morgan Stanley. By leveraging their experience as investors and entrepreneurs, they aspired to build an online platform that made startup investing and fundraising simple and accessible to everyone. In April 2014, after building a sizeable investor base and helping dozens of companies raise capital online, SeedInvest raised its Series A round on its own platform.

Since then, the SeedInvest team has grown to over two dozen team members, helped over 200 companies raise capital, and built a rapidly growing network of over 300,000 investors. In June 2015, SeedInvest was the first equity crowdfunding platform to open up to the other 98% of Americans who were previously restricted from investing in startups.
