Should I do a SeedNOTE/SeedFAST or an Instant Investment?SeedFAST/NOTE is designed for fundraising before a round.
You can do a SeedNOTE or SeedFAST when you want to take investment without doing a valuation. SeedFASTs and SeedNOTEs are future equity agreements that allow you to take investment now and issue shares or repay the money at a future date based on the valuation at that time.

You can do an Instant Investment when you already have an agreed-upon valuation and want to issue shares right away at the agreed-upon price per share.
When you do a funding round on SeedLegals, you can enable Instant Investment in the round. This makes it easy for you to top up afterwards because you’ve sorted out all the necessary permissions already.
