Frequently Asked Questions

What is a "Seed" funding round?

Seed money, also known as "seed funding" or "seed capital", is a form of securities offering in which an investor puts capital (typically cash money) into a startup company in exchange for an equity stake or convertible note stake in the company.

The "Seed" funding round is typically the first investment a startup company receives, and is typically utilized to improve their product offerings to gain "market fit" (the degree to which a product offered by the startup is in demand by the market).

Seed investors come in many forms, ranging from regular individuals to professional fund managers (venture capitalists).

What is a "Verified Investor"?

A "Verified Investor" is a profile/company that our team at BEAMSTART has internally vetted and communicated with.

These are also investors that you can submit your business proposals (pitch decks) to directly via their profile on BEAMSTART.

The purpose of adding the "Verified Investor" badge is to increase both credibility and deal-flow for these investors.

What is the difference between a "Managing Partner", "General Partner", and "Associate" in an investment firm?

In an investment firm, the roles of Managing Partner, General Partner, and Associate differ in terms of their responsibilities and level of authority within the firm's hierarchy:
  • Managing Partner: The Managing Partner is typically the senior-most partner in the firm. They are responsible for overseeing the firm's overall operations, setting its strategic direction, and representing the firm externally. Managing Partners often have a significant ownership stake in the firm and play a key role in decision-making.
  • General Partner: General Partners are senior members of the firm who are responsible for sourcing and evaluating investment opportunities, managing portfolio companies, and raising capital from investors. They also typically have ownership stakes in the firm. General Partners are involved in making investment decisions and managing the firm's investment portfolio.
  • Associates / Analysts: Associates (sometimes also known as "Analysts") are typically entry-level professionals in an investment firm. They support the General Partners and Managing Partners in sourcing and evaluating investment opportunities, conducting due diligence, and monitoring portfolio companies. Associates often have a more analytical and research-focused role, helping the senior partners make informed investment decisions.
Overall, Managing Partners have the highest level of authority and responsibility, followed by General Partners who are responsible for managing investments, and Associates who provide support to the senior members of the firm.
