Why should you raise capital on SeedInvest?

We have funding from traditional VCs, as well as big angels. But we consider ourselves a community more than a media publication — our readers love us a lot, they always ask to invest, and so we decided to let them. We raised $350,000 in 72 hours on SeedInvest and ended up oversubscribed. It was crazy.

Investments in startups are highly illiquid and those investors who cannot hold an investment for the long term (at least 5-7 years) should not invest.
