Guiding Early Stage Ventures

To Success

Seed is a modeling and financial services expert whose mission is to grow early stage ventures.

A New Idea in Early-Stage Venture Acceleration

Early stage ventures often struggle to build sustainable, profitable, and efficient models in the markets they seek to penetrate. They also struggle in understanding how to attract and bring capital into their ventures in a way that ensures long-term viability.

Seed guides the way for a new type of innovator with the mindset and skills capable of developing real solutions that can change the world.

“We must change the metrics that young startups use. The only outcomes that matter are profitability, sustainability and efficiency. Startups must understand what it means to build foundations that can ensure these outcomes are realized rather than over-focusing on securing round after round of funding.”

Joe Gitto

Co-Founder of Seed
