  • FAQs - SeedSAFE

    Frequently asked questions about SeedSAFE

    • What is a Simple Agreement for Future Equity (SAFE)?

      A Simple Agreement for Future Equity (SAFE) is a type of advanced subscription agreement. Advanced subscription agreements are used by startups to raise equity investment from investors, typically before a funding round, but can also be used as a bridge to a future funding round.
      SAFEs allow you to raise capital without a valuation in exchange for the right for your investors to receive equity at a later date - whether that is at a predetermined date, or atf a future event such as the company raising a certain amount of funding or achieving a certain milestone.
      A popular example of a SAFE is the Y Combinator (YC) SAFE, which is a widely used template by startups in the US and across Asia-Pacific for raising equity investment.
    • What is SeedSAFE?

      SeedSAFE is the SeedLegals name for all our SAFEs. With SeedSAFE, you can either raise using the terms and features of the standard YC SAFE, or choose enhanced features including:
      - Add a longstop date and fixed valuation,
      - GIve investors a discount
      - Set a valuation cap
      - Define a minimum investment amount
      - Specify the share class for new investors
      - Add provisions for investors rights

      Or, you can create a SeedFAST (the UK standard).
    • What is SeedFAST?

      SeedFAST is an advanced subscription agreement that SeedLegals developed for the UK.
      SeedFAST is now the market-standard document for startups looking to raise early-stage capital in the UK.
      SeedFASTs are individual, super simple, quick agreements for future equity in the company where investors pre-pay for shares that will be allocated to them in the next funding round.
      SeedFASTs can be customised to suit the investment/ You can include a longstop date, valuation cap, discount rate, minimum investment amount, share class for the shares you’ll issue to the investor in future, and investor rights including investor majority right, board observer right and Most Favoured Nation (MFN) clause.
    • What is the difference between a SAFE and a CLN?

      CLNs sometimes get confused with SAFEs as they are both agreements you make with investors that help you raise money before a funding round.
      The main difference between SAFEs and CLNs is that convertible notes are debt-equity (also known as quasi-equity) instruments while SAFEs are equity agreements. The convertible debt can be repaid in certain scenarios, and it can carry interest, while a SAFE (such as a SeedSAFE or a SeedFAST) is not repayable at all.
    • When should I use a SeedSAFE?

      SeedSAFEs should be used before a funding round, or as a bridge to a later funding round (that will usually take place within a year), when you want to quickly take in a small amount of investment and you don’t want to commit to a valuation.
      SeedSAFEs are a flexible and attractive option if you want to quickly take an investment when traditional funding methods aren’t available or practical.
    • When do I need to issue equity to my investor?

      It depends on what terms you choose for your agreement. Your SeedSAFE and SeedNOTE convert to equity either:
      - at the next funding round, or
      - when you raise above a preset qualifying amount, or
      - at the longstop or maturity date
      This is the date at which the agreement automatically converts if you don’t raise any more funds.
    • I have operations in the UK, can SeedLegals help?

      Yes, absolutely. We offer a range of services in the UK and it can be more efficient to streamline your international operations through SeedLegals. Ask us for more information.
    • I have a UK investor and they’re asking me about SEIS/EIS relief...?

      In the UK, the Enterprise Investment Schemes - SEIS and EIS - give generous tax breaks to investors in startups and scale-ups. If an investment in your company qualifies for SEIS or EIS, it can make you much more attractive to UK investors. .
      Our SeedFAST agreements aren’t classed as debt so they are SEIS and EIS compliant, as long as you include a longstop date no more than six months from when your investor gives you the funds (so the agreement converts to equity within the six months).
      SeedNOTEs aren’t compatible with SEIS or EIS because they’re classed as debt.
