David Kaplan

Co-Founder and CEO, Death & Co · raised $2,000,000

“Crowdfunding wasn’t really on our radar, we weren’t really aware of it as a route and we really fell in love with the people at SeedInvest and the idea and ultimately the idea that we could have our investor base made up of the people that have supported us this entire time: our fans, our customers. ”

SeedInvest investors invest via a set of standard documents (convertible notes, preferred equity, or Crowd Notes) tailored to raising capital online, which ensures they receive the same economic benefit as traditional investors while greatly facilitating shareholder management.
