Each year, Inc. Magazine’s 500 and 5000 lists feature the most successful, up-and-coming companies in the United States. In 2018, the Inc. 500 included SeedInvest, ranking it as the fourth fastest-growing financial services company.

This year, we’re excited to welcome a number of both our portfolio companies and the startups currently raising on our platform into this exclusive club that also includes past honorees such as Microsoft, Timberland, Vizio, Intuit, Chobani, Oracle, and Zappos.com.
