About Valet Anywhere

Welcome to a new world of driving. With Valet Anywhere, you have the freedom to go anywhere and do anything, without ever having to deal with the hassle and stress of finding parking. 


With this revolutionary on-demand valet service, you just open the app, and request a pick up - wherever you are, wherever you are going. A professional, friendly valet arrives or is waiting for you to take care of your car. They move your car to a secure Valet Anywhere location in the city. When you’re ready to leave, just request a pick up. Your Valet returns your car to you. 


Valet Anywhere is priced comparable to what you’d pay for standard parking. And it’s automatically charged to your credit card on file. No signatures or waiting required. 


With Valet Anywhere, you save time and can always feel safe handing over your keys. Every valet has been screened to ensure a clean background and driving records, and has been rated by other Valet Anywhere members as part of training process. 


Plus, Valet Anywhere offers every car a comprehensive insurance policy once a valet takes possession of your car, so you are protected under every circumstance.

Frequently Asked Questions

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


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)

Because Valet Anywhere is offering its securities under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D, your status as an Accredited Investor will also need to be verified and you will be asked to provide documentation supporting your income, net worth, revenue, or net assets or a letter from a qualified advisor such as a Registered Investment Advisor, Registered Broker Dealer, Lawyer, or CPA.


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 Valet Anywhere does not plan to list these shares on a national exchange or another secondary market. At some point Valet Anywhere 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 Valet Anywhere 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.
