What are Seed Funds & Accelerators?
Seed capital is provided by private investors – usually in exchange for an equity stake in the company or a share of the profits of a product. The type of investor will include founder personal investment, friends and family, angels, or investment funds set up specifically for an early-stage venture.
Investors and business communities set up accelerators to help early-stage businesses access both services, a network of advisors, and early-stage investors. Some accelerators have specific funds that will invest in high potential participants.
