Seed Equity Ventures, LLC (Seed Equity) recently announced the launch of its online equity crowd-funding platform, built to link equity investors with entrepreneurs and startups across the globe.
The platform allows entrepreneurs to share information about their startup, carry out due diligence processes, apply for funding, and close formal international investment agreements with multiple investors.
Investors receive the necessary registrations and accreditations, after which they can become mentors or thought leaders for specific industries and keep their eyes on potential investment possibilities around the world.
Seed Equity’s launch comes at a time when the startup market is expanding geographically and investment is being diversified through crowd-funding initiatives.
“Countries like Israel and Chile have actively been supporting their own startup ecosystems through grants and tax breaks which has spurred a boom of promising startups across the globe,” said Seed Equity founder and CEO Todd Crosland, a former Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year and winner of multiple Inc. 500 award
Crosland stressed that his company provides “one of the first global social investing platforms that connects startups and growth companies with institutional and individual investors from around the world,” adding that the focus of many prior funding services has been on the U.S. market only.
Seed Equity is a registered broker dealer with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and a member of securities regulators FINRA and SIPC.
