Now, you can add venture capital to your portfolio.
Have you ever wanted to invest like the 1%, college endowments or big public pension funds? Venture capital as an asset class has been a fixture in sophisticated investors’ portfolios for years, providing the “sizzle” that contributes to outsized performance.* Are you interested in getting in on the next big thing (think Tesla or Coinbase)—well before they become big (or go public)**?
Right now, Seismic is offering this venture-capital-like opportunity to just about everyone, regardless of income or amount of investment experience. Our investment process seeks potential unicorns (private companies that reach a billion-dollar valuation before going public or being sold). We want to nurture ideas that can revolutionize industries. And now, you can be a part of what might be the next big thing.
Another thing: we only look at companies who meet Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) standards. More and more evidence shows that outperformance is closely tied with sustainable and ethical business practices.
Now you can own equity shares of Seismic Capital Company.

A tax-advantaged structure designed to meet investors’ long-term needs:
TAX-ADVANTAGED QUALIFIED SMALL BUSINESS STOCK (QSBS) STRUCTURE
This advantageous structure will shield most investors from capital gains taxes after a holding period (if the shareholder purchased their shares from the original offering—this Reg A+ offering). This is based on IRS Code Section 1202 (qualified small business stocks). Seismic does not provide tax advice; please consult your tax professional for personalized advice.
A diversified portfolio can help minimize risk:
We aren’t just looking for companies that will perform well—we’re seeking extraordinary firms that aim to disrupt the very core of their industries. We look for companies that understand that the status quo needs shaking, and possess the plan, skills, team, and product or service that are likely to achieve just that.
Your investment in Seismic is an investment in all the holdings we acquire—not just one. This diversification of companies, industries, and stages will be a strategic advantage for our shareholders, aiming to mitigate risk and maximize the probability of success.
