What is Seed Capital?


Definition of Seed Capital

Seed capital is a relatively small investment that contributed to a startup at the very earliest stage of the venture.

Of course, when we say “relatively small” we are still talking about some pretty significant figures. A seed round could see anywhere between $50,000 to $2 million raised.

Seed capital is usually a precursor to larger investments that come in rounds and is commonly associated with tech startups.
