The “500 Startups” Fundraising Platform is Powered by SeedInvest


Aspiring entrepreneurs should consult good mentors to help execute their great idea. Among potential mentors, “500 Startups” should be on a startup founder’s radar. 500 Startups is a startup accelerator program so that startups can get early-stage advice and seed capital, up to $250,000 according to the program’s website.

500 Startups has partnered with SeedInvest, the innovative crowdfunding platform that (1) allows individual investors the opportunity to invest alongside veteran venture capitalists and (2) enables those investors to leverage the professional venture capitalists’ analytic experience used to pre-screen select startup companies in which to invest.

Bottomline: founders should explore the various resources available to help ensure their startup’s success.
