Yet Another (ex-)VC Blog

Cloud computing, startups, and venture capital

VC Associate @ SeedInvest in New York City, NY

SeedInvest (LinkedIn, Crunchbase) was founded by Ryan Feit and James Han and officially launched in February 2013. 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. Since then, SeedInvest has worked closely with members of the SEC, FINRA, the White House, and the Treasury Department on the implementation of the JOBS Act. SeedInvest has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Economist, Fortune Magazine, Inc. Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, Forbes, TechCrunch, CNN, Bloomberg, CNBC, MSNBC and FoxBusiness.  You can also watch our three appearances on MadMoney with Jim Cramer (herehere and here).
