Trustify is an online platform that connects individuals and businesses with highly trained, vetted private investigators.

About Trustify

What is Trustify? Trustify connects clients across the United States to a network of highly trained professionals that offer real-time observation and digital monitoring. The company provides affordable, confidential, on-demand access to experienced professionals - without the typical $3,000 retainer charged by most traditional private investigation agencies.

Product & Service

How it Works. Trustify is an aggregator of private detective services. The company offers a variety of detective services for $100 or less per hour and has nationwide coverage providing licensed investigator services with no retainer. Trustify vets private investigators through a detailed background check and verification of a state license. Additionally, customers rate private investigators after jobs have been completed and Trustify removes any private investigators from their platform that receive bad reviews.

Team Story

Trustify’s founder experienced the difficulties of hiring a private investigator first hand. Wanting to ensure his kids were safe during a messy divorce, Danny Boice searched Google to find a private investigator. After pocketing thousands of his dollars in retainers, his PI rarely communicated with him. There was no transparency or status updates along the way. And in the end, there were no results. Danny realized that the world of private investigators needed a shakeup - a new system that would be simple, easy and trustworthy. So he created Trustify. Trustify has taken the guesswork out of hiring a private investigator, so you can focus on what really matters.

Frequently Asked Questions

Making an Investment in Trustify
How does investing work?

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 Trustify. Once Trustify accepts your investment, and certain regulatory procedures are completed, your money will be transferred from the escrow account to Trustify in exchange for your shares. At that point, you will be a proud owner in Trustify.

What is the difference between preferred equity and a convertible note?

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.

To learn more about startup investment types check out “How to Choose a Startup Investment” in our academy.

What will I need to complete my investment?

To make an investment, you will need the following information readily available:

  1. Personal information such as your current address and phone number
  2. Employment and employer information
  3. Net worth and income information
  4. Social Security Number or government-issued identification
  5. ABA bank routing number and checking account number (typically found on a personal check or bank statement)

What if I change my mind about investing?

Until a closing occurs, you may cancel your investment at any time, for any reason. You will receive an email when the closing occurs and your shares have been issued. 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.

After My Investment
How can I sell my shares in the future?

Currently there is no market or liquidity for these shares. Right now Trustify does not plan to list these shares on a national exchange or another secondary market. At some point Trustify 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 Trustify either lists their shares on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.

How do I keep track of this investment?

You can return to SeedInvest at any time to view your portfolio of investments and obtain a summary statement.
