- When a startup becomes eligible for accepting Auto Invest investments on SeedInvest, you will automatically invest in that company based on your settings.

If the startup is unsuccessful in raising sufficient funds, your investment will be canceled and your funds promptly returned to your funding account.
You're free to cancel an investment at any time before your investment closes. Just let our team know and we’ll handle the rest.
You're in control. You can pause or restart SeedInvest Auto Invest at any time through your Auto Invest Management page.

A custodial account will be set up for you at New Direction IRA, Inc. (“New Direction”) during the onboarding process. (Your account with New Direction will not be an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and hence will not affect your regular IRA contribution limits.) This account will hold your dedicated funds for you. Any investment made through your Auto Invest account will be funded directly from your New Direction account.
You can change the amount allocated to your account at any time and as often as you’d like via your Auto Invest Management page.

We are working with several different payment processors to enable as many investors as possible to participate in Auto Invest. Depending on the payment processor, it will usually take 5-10 business days for your funds to show up in your Auto Invest account.
Per deal allocations cannot be changed when investing through Auto Invest. If you would like to invest a specific amount into a specific company, you can do so by investing via the normal investment process (subject to deal-specific investment minimums).
If there is a company you really like and you want to invest more than your Auto Invest check size, you can simply double down by going to the company's profile and invest through the regular investment process.
