      You can raise any amount between £5,000 and £10 million.
    • Can I use Instant Investment if I haven’t done a funding round on SeedLegals before?

      Yes, you can. Instant Investment is designed as a quick and easy way to top up a funding round - but if you’ve completed a funding round elsewhere or even if you’ve never done a funding round before, you can still use Instant Investment to raise startup funding. We have all the documents you need to close the deal and assign shares on SeedLegals.

      If you’re interested in doing a funding round you can use SeedLegals for that too. You can use any of our services together with Instant Investment.

    • What documents do I need for an Instant Investment?

      On SeedLegals, these are the documents you need to complete each Instant Investment:

      • Instant Investment Proposal

      • Instant Investment Agreement

      • Board Resolution

      • SH01 Form


      The documents are generated and auto-filled for you.
    • 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.

      Instant Investment is designed for topping up a previous round.

      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.
    • How many investments can I receive with Instant Investment?

      There is no limit on how many investments you can receive as Instant Investment. You can use it as many times as you like for any number of investors. Each investment amount must be between £5,000 and £10M.

      Keep in mind that you pay per investment. We charge 2% of the investment amount, for each Instant Investment made.
    • What does a ‘rolling close’ mean?

      A rolling close means that you’re still accepting investments after closing your most recent funding round.
    • What is agile funding?

      Agile funding is our way to describe raising startup capital without doing a funding round. Agile funding allows you to take investment as and when it suits you.

      Nowadays startups need to raise capital in simpler ways that cost less time and money. We’re pioneering this change with agile funding services designed to help you take investments whenever the opportunity arises.
