Welcome to Seismic, and thank you for your confidence in us.
Look for email updates from us as we process your investment.
After we receive payment and complete the required KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML (Anti-Money Laundering) checks, we will send the countersigned subscription agreement back to you.
Shortly after that, you’ll receive an email with instructions about accessing your share account online.
Then, watch for announcements from us…new investments and more.
A couple of notes to be aware of:
1. The shares you purchased today are Qualified Small Business Stock. Most investors who hold onto them for five years or more before selling will be exempt from capital gains taxes at the Federal level, and in most states too. Please check with your tax advisor for more information on this, as Seismic cannot provide tax advice. Seismic has no restriction on selling your shares at any time, but if want to claim the QSBS benefit, five years is required for full exemption.
2. At Seismic, unlike other investors in the venture capital space, we never impose any fees. Others will charge for things like asset management or for closing a transaction or for selling a portfolio company, or taking it public. We want your money to go toward investments that will benefit you, so everyone associated with Seismic owns the same shares. Only when the investors win does the management team win too.
3. With your purchase of Seismic shares, you have stake in every investment we make, so long as you hold your shares. Many of our investors over time have increased their investments, or made investments as gifts for their friends and relatives – children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Once you hold Seismic shares, you no longer have to meet the $1,000 minimum investment requirement, and you can purchase shares for others in smaller (or larger) amounts. If that’s of interest to you, please contact our CFO, Alice Neuhauser, at email@example.com.
We’re always available to answer any questions you may have.
Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll answer back as quickly as we can.
Thank you again.
