Seedrs is an online platform for discovering and investing in great startups. We make it possible for people to invest as much or as little as they like in the startups they choose through a simple, online process, and we let startup businesses raise seed capital seamlessly from friends, family, members of their communities and independent investors.




Seedrs has two core objectives:

Transform the startup world by giving entrepreneurs a platform to leverage their friends, family and existing base of supporters to collectively raise investment. These investors represent a large new pool of capital and can act as mentors, supporters and advocates for these young companies.




Give ordinary people the opportunity to invest in the startups they choose to:
Get exposure to the returns from a portfolio of startup investments; Enjoy the excitement of being part of dynamic, high-growth businesses; and Help friends, family and community get their business ideas off the ground.
