When applying to raise with Seedrs, we ask you to define the stage of your business - this will help our Campaign Development team determine if equity crowdfunding is the best way to fund your business at this point in time. Here is how we define each business stage:

Pre-launch

•  Early stages have already been funded by you personally or by an early angel investor

•  Your business is now looking to raise funds from your team's personal network and from the Seedrs investor community

Startup

  • Your product or service has launched
  • There are early adopters actively using it
  • It's backed by angels and it's now looking to raise funds from your team's network, early adopters and the Seedrs investment community to accelerate growth

Series A

  • Your product or service has been iterated
  • It has a larger user base and is generating revenue
  • You've completed several investment rounds and you're looking to raise funds from your contacts, your customer base and the Seedrs investment community

Growth

  • Your business has a well-established brand
  • The next step is likely international expansion, but first your business requires significant funding
  • Your next round will likely need to be led by a VC or a series of large angel investors
  • You're looking to create brand evangelists by offering users and the Seedrs community access to the round
