CRISPR, RNA and similar medicines are very powerful.
However, they require cell targeting technologies to actually enter the desired cell types, and reprogram those cells as we desire.
Without advancements in delivery technology, gene therapy will remain limited to single doses of viruses (very expensive, immunogenic issues) and small sets of applications where cells can be permeabilized with mechanical or electrical means.
Ligandal is creating an innovative and novel targeting technology for gene therapies that is non-viral, cell targeted for specific cell types, and repeat dosable. The peptide-based materials cost $5/mg to manufacture. This means that gene therapies can become practical, efficacious, and broadly available for the masses.
Frequently Asked Questions
When you complete your investment on SeedInvest, your money will be transferred to an escrow account where an independent escrow agent will watch over your investment until it is accepted by Ligandal. Once Ligandal accepts your investment, and certain regulatory procedures are completed, your money will be transferred from the escrow account to Ligandal in exchange for your securities. At that point, you will be a proud owner in Ligandal.
Preferred equity is usually issued to outside investors and carries rights and conditions that are different from that of common stock. For example, preferred equity may include rights that prevent or minimize the effects of dilution or grants special privileges in situations when the company is sold.
A convertible note is a unique form of debt that converts into equity, usually in conjunction with a future financing round. The investor effectively loans money to a startup with the expectation that they will receive equity in the company in the future at a discounted price per share when the company raises its next round of financing.

- Personal information such as your current address and phone number

If you have already funded your investment and your funds are in escrow, your funds will be promptly refunded to you upon cancellation. To cancel your investment, please go to your portfolio page by clicking your profile icon in the top right corner.
Currently there is no market or liquidity for these securities. Right now Ligandal does not plan to list these securities on a national exchange or another secondary market. At some point Ligandal may choose to do so, but until then you should plan to hold your investment for a significant period of time before a “liquidation event” occurs. A “liquidation event” is when Ligandal either lists their securities on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.
