The ABCs (all the way through Z) of Startup Investing

If you’re reading this, you probably already have an interest in investing in early stage startups (and some of you already have). But it’s hard to know where to begin. The market is constantly changing, and with so many variables at play it can be difficult to figure out which companies are truly “high potential”—and if you’re even allowed to invest in them. The question is, what megatrends will be coming of age in what time horizon?

Luckily, our Chief Financial Officer, Alice Neuhauser, broke nearly everything down in an exclusive interview with Stocks for Beginners on Monday. This one comes with our highest recommendation, and it’s as close as it gets to a definitive overview of Seismic’s unique, democratized approach to private investing. There’s not a minute wasted as Alice jumps from the current and future states of the private market, to our Regulation A+ offering that’s broken the barriers to Venture Capital investing, to the tax advantages that come with Seismic’s Qualified Small Business Stock structure, to so much more.

While the entire interview is worth a listen, here’s our best attempt at a “too long; didn’t read”: thanks to Seismic, investors of all backgrounds can now add Venture Capital to their portfolio through one simple investment in our growing selection of startups that we carefully vet for high potential. When we say “high potential,” we mean “high”—we’re searching for the next “unicorn” (aka a startup valued at $1 billion or more), and we intend to find it before it gets big. And through our active management of our portfolio companies, we aim to take the risk out of Venture Capital investing, while also maximizing returns.

ICYMI: A New Way to Invest in Seismic

We’re not kidding when we say accessibility is at the heart of this offering. We believe Venture Capital should be in everyone’s portfolio—not just the 1%—and we’re doing all we can to make the process easier.

As such, we now offer the option to invest in Seismic through DocuSign. This is not only a platform that many have become accustomed to using, but also one of the most secure portals for entering personal information. If you’ve ever run into trouble with the investment process on our offering page, this is a great new way to invest, and we’ve made it as streamlined as possible.

To invest using DocuSign, simply click here and enter your name and email address on the first page. From there, it’s just a matter of filling out each required field on the form, adding your digital signature, and hitting “Finish” at the top.

Got questions? That’s what we’re here for. Just reach out to us by email or phone, and we’ll chat with you. To learn more about investing in our portfolio of innovative startups, as we build it, please visit our offering page. There, you can also find our SEC-qualified Offering Circular.
