SeedInvest believes that private markets should not be closed, opaque, and accessible only by a wealthy few, but by all entrepreneurs and investors regardless of geography, access, demographics, or background. SeedInvest was instrumental in the passage of the 2012 JOBS Act, which changed 80-year-old U.S. securities laws to make it possible for entrepreneurs to raise capital over the Internet, and has since worked actively with the SEC and other regulators to re-invent the legacy investment banking and private capital market rails that have remained unchanged for nearly a century. SeedInvest is in the early innings of having "a bit of private investment" in everyone's investment portfolio and believes its growing suite of products will give rise to a new generation of investors and startups that will participate in a vibrant, liquid, and accessible private capital market unlike ever before.
