Todd Crosland, CEO of Seed Equity Ventures, shared some insights about investing in startups on the platform. While these steps are tuned to the Seed Equity platform, keep in mind that the process is similar across most all startup investing websites. STEP 1: Sign Up and Join Seed Equity At this time, Seed Equity only accepts investments from accredited investors, those well-healed investors with a net worth (excluding their primary residences) of at least $1 million or consistent personal annual incomes of at least $200,000. Seed Equity is evaluating interest from ordinary investors to participate under the newly issued rule for Regulation Crowdfunding. A growing number of platforms now accept investments in startups from ordinary investors. Learn more here. STEP 2: Customize Deal Flow We will ask questions during your on-boarding process to help customize your Seed Equity experience according the preferences you indicate. Customize your investment goals by telling us how much you have put aside to invest and what portion of that you would like to invest in startups. STEP 3: Browse Investment Opportunities At any given time, the companies listed at Seed Equity Ventures will change as deals are funded and new opportunities are listed.
