    More about SeedInvest :

    Circle's SeedInvest is the creator of www.seedinvest.com, a venture / startup equity investment platform, and aims to be the largest online private capital marketplace in the world.

    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.
