The company has also launched a Club product for members who want to diversify their portfolio
Bucharest, 7th April 2022: The European investment platform for technology startups SeedBlink is launching an annual membership SeedBlink Club – and is working to create a secondary market where investors can trade their assets with each other.
SeedBlink Club members can diversify their portfolio with venture capital-led opportunities starting at 1,000 euros, compared to 2,500 euros for the current value of the minimum ticket. In addition, the subscription includes benefits related to access to industry experts, exclusive private events, the ability to pre-evaluate proposed startups and invest in private rounds through syndication.
"We have investors with large portfolios to whom we offer additional support services, networking and priority access. The club is a natural extension, in which we want to bring the same benefits to those who are just starting out in building and diversifying their portfolio and learning from experienced investors”, says Adriana Iordan, Chief Product and Marketing at SeedBlink.
SeedBlink is also preparing to launch a secondary market in the second half of the year, where investors can trade their assets, thus increasing liquidity of their portfolio investments. Several iterations have already been tested and used by investors in companies with new rounds of investment.
"The partial exit at KFactory went as I expected. The company had a new round of financing at a new price. Some of the initial investors wanted to continue investing in the new valuation, and another part, including me, wanted to sell. SeedBlink shared the intents of the demand with the offer: helping us to fairly determine the number of shares that each seller could sell considering the offer, prepared the documents for signing, and communicated with all parties involved until the actual completion of the transaction. Finally, after a year and a half, I recovered the investment in exchange for about a third of the shares. I still own two-thirds of the shares originally purchased", said Daniel Cîrstoaia, an investor on the SeedBlink platform.
This secondary market will contain the tools and infrastructure that will allow investors to safely change their assets.
Last but not least, SeedBlink has launched several improvements to its investment platform and website, the most important being in the "My Portfolio" section. Thus, this section will include follow-on information for investments, but also external information through which investors will be able to see important details for their assets.

SeedBlink is a transparent solution that connects entrepreneurs with great business plans, with investors, at different stages in their development. It is a great tool for us, a democratization of access to funding, I would say.
We really loved the SeedBlink journey. We reached our fundraising goal within hours of launching. About 100 investors joined our vision and invested almost $2 million in FLOWX.AI through the Private Deal Room. At the same time, working with SeedBlink to prepare for the funding round was an excellent exercise for our entire team, and we received and felt the support from the SeedBlink team members who took on an advisory role.
SeedBlink made the (investment) process run smoothly. We appreciate all the support SeedBlink's professional team has provided.
Founder and CEO
It's important to look for and choose a platform that you resonate with, that shares your mission with, a platform & its people with which you feel you can have good working relationships. we got an excellent relationship going forward; we talked a lot and we were in touch on a lot of matters and I think this was important. Having people who believe in your idea is of great help.
Founder and CEO
Running the financing round was like any other fundraising; we had to be active in our community as well as in SeedBlink's investor community. After the launch, everything happened very quickly, and SeedBlink organized several pitch events for investors, which we found very useful for the round momentum.
Founder and CEO
We immediately clicked with the SeedBlink team as their fundraising expertise was immediately obvious and their no-nonsense approach really appealed to us. After all, fundraising is only a means to an end, and we liked how the SeedBlink team was really focusing on supporting us and on getting things done.
Our main expectation has been to raise the amount we were aiming for, and both rounds launched on Seedblink exceeded our targets, so we’re very happy with that! Even though the launched funding campaigns have been purely crowdfunding rounds, we are thrilled to actually receive extra support from some of the investors, who have chosen to get involved and help us generate product awareness, whenever they can.
I am recommending SeedBlink without hesitation, to every founder that raises capital, especially early-stage tech startups. SeedBlink is a crowd investment platform that will also provide their startup with visibility, for Angels and VCs.
Founder and CEO
In the early stages, we have been funded by several early (angel) investors, and one and a half year ago through an equity crowdfunding campaign on SeedBlink. Of course, this impacted our growth in many positive ways, partly due to the cash influx that, evidently, was sorely needed, but in a larger part due to the fact that our responsibility towards our shareholders has become more stringent and explicit, becoming embodied in our market approach.
Co-founder and CEO
Given the accelerated growth we observed at the end of last year and the beginning of 2021, we want a new capitalization, quickly. This is a bridge round that we will use for one year, and the advantages that SeedBlink offers are the speed at which we were able to list for financing and the experience that we gain as a result of this public listing, similar to a listing on the stock exchange.
Co-Founder & CEO
As a platform that only serves technology ventures, SeedBlink can connect the start-up with more than just money. SeedBlink investors are primarily technocrats who understand the objectives of the fundraising company and are also able to post-funding contribute with business opportunities. The minimum investment threshold, and technology focus, differentiates SeedBlink from other fundraising platforms. A perfect fit for a technology start-up seeking intelligent funding.
Co-Founder & CEO
SeedBlink boosted our brand exposure and facilitated the financial support we were seeking. Having a campaign on the platform allowed us not only to meet a team of professionals - that guided and helped us prepare the necessary materials - but also opened doors for increasing our brand awareness and have discussions with VCs & angel investors we have never reached before. This campaign gave us the encouragement we needed to push the product further, while the record-breaking fundraising (only 2 hours from the launch of the campaign!) was a great confirmation that our product is needed in this market and that we should continue innovating.
CEO & Co-founder
SeedBlink has created a vital ecosystem for startups at the beginning of their journey by equipping entrepreneurs with expertise, encouraging honest and sometimes uncomfortable but necessary discussions about risks and vulnerabilities through a suite of tools, and facilitating connections with investors who share the founders' vision and can contribute to their success. I have greatly appreciated the constant support of Eric and the entire team at all stages of the campaign. Thank you so much!
