• While a larger portfolio of startups investments has historically correlated with increased likelihood of higher returns, past performance is no guarantee of future results. Startups raising capital on SeedInvest are not necessarily representative of those which have generated positive historical returns. In addition, early-stage startup investing has a higher rate of failure, volatility, and less liquidity. Only those prepared for extreme volatility, a lack of liquidity, and the risk of losing their entire investment should invest in early-stage startup investments.

  • Diversification is only across multiple early-stage investment opportunities within the asset class. There is no guarantee that this program will lead to a well-balanced portfolio of companies across industry types or stages across the asset class. In addition, enrolling in this program will not lead to diversification across your entire investment portfolio. In order to achieve diversification, we do not recommend you allocate more than 10% of your entire investment portfolio to alternative assets.

  • SeedInvest’s selection criteria does not suggest higher quality investment opportunities nor does it imply that investors will generate positive returns in investment opportunities on SeedInvest.

  • SeedInvest’s due diligence process is no guarantee of success or future results. All investors should carefully review each investment opportunity and cancel their subscription within the allotted time-frame if they do not feel comfortable making any specific investment based on their own DD.

To Get Started

auto invest switchback background

Diversify like VCs, automatically.

Professional investors make a lot of bets in early stage companies because building a larger portfolio has historically been correlated with higher returns on average.

According to the Kauffman Foundation, many investors believe 10-12 early-stage deals provide adequate diversification while six or less investments is considered too risky. Auto Invest makes diversification easy.

How it Works

Customize your experience

Opt-out, restart, add more funds, or withdraw funds whenever you want.


Once your investment account is completely set up and funded, your Auto Invest membership will automatically start.

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

You will automatically be notified of each investment and will have until your investment is closed to cancel it if you wish to do so.

In accordance with regulatory rules and restrictions, you will automatically be matched with startups that you are legally allowed to invest in. View all current and previously funded opportunities.

Startups must have not opted out from participating in the Auto Invest program prior to launching their round; and raise at least $250K if conducting their raise under Regulation D and/or Regulation CF, or $2M if conducting their raise under Regulation A+.

If the startup is unsuccessful in raising sufficient funds, your investment will be canceled and your funds promptly returned to your funding account.

There are no fees or ongoing costs associated with creating or maintaining an Auto Invest account. However, note that those enrolled in Auto Invest are subject to SeedInvest's standard transaction processing fees (2% non-refundable processing fee, up to US $300, per investment) at the time each investment is made.

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.

A custodial account will be set up for you at New Direction Trust Company (“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.

New Direction Trust Company (“New Direction”) is being used to create custodial trust accounts on your behalf to manage your SeedInvest Auto Invest assets. Your account with New Direction will not be an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and hence will not affect your regular IRA contribution limits. For more information about New Direction, click here.

The goal of Auto Invest is to give investors an easy way to diversify their portfolio. If you would like to invest in a specific industry or startup, you can easily do so via the regular investment process.

Auto Invest was not designed for investors to pick and choose specific investment opportunities. If you attempt to use existing Auto Invest features in this way, you are likely going to be disappointed with the experience. 

Auto Invest was purposefully designed to be a passive investment product, allowing investors to benefit from broader diversification than our traditional investment minimums may otherwise permit, while still affording investors the option to opt-out of specific investment opportunities. If you would prefer to proactively pick and choose specific investment opportunities, please review our Offerings page instead.

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. Changing your allocation will not affect any investments which have already been made. Please note: there may be regulatory restrictions regarding how much you can invest into startups based on your financial situation.

How long does it usually take for my funds to arrive in my Auto Invest Account?

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 minimum).

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.

You're in control. You can pause or restart SeedInvest Auto Invest at any time through your Auto Invest Management page.
