About SeedInvest

Ryan Feit and James Han founded SeedInvest in 2012. Shocked by how difficult it was for their Wharton classmates to raise capital for their startups, Ryan and James joined a movement to change 80-year-old securities laws to make it easier for entrepreneurs to raise capital online. During the following year, they became instrumental in arguably the most significant change to U.S. securities laws in our lifetime: the passage of the JOBS Act.

Ryan and James professionally invested in and financed companies across technology, consumer, and other major market sectors while at Wellspring Capital, Francisco Partners, Lehman Brothers, and Morgan Stanley. By leveraging their experience as investors and entrepreneurs, they aspired to build an online platform that made startup investing and fundraising simple and accessible to everyone. In April 2014, after building a sizeable investor base and helping dozens of companies raise capital online, SeedInvest raised its Series A round on its own platform.

Since then, the SeedInvest team has grown to over twenty team members, helped over 220 companies raise capital, and built a rapidly growing network of over 251,672 investors. In June 2015, SeedInvest was the first equity crowdfunding platform to open up to the other 98% of Americans who were previously restricted from investing in startups.
