SeedLegals, a cloud-based platform that simplifies and cuts the cost of the startup fundraising process, has secured £1m in VC investment from Angel investors, two law firms and an early stage venture fund.

Launched in March 2017, SeedLegals aims to reduce the time and cost of a startup funding round by 80%. It helps founders get investment-ready and simplifies each aspect of the fundraising process.

The firm increases the transparency of the funding process by allowing founders and investors to allocate shares, add investors, negotiate and complete a funding round online. Documents can be e-signed and securely hosted in the cloud for online viewing and sharing.

SeedLegals claims all of this reduces the average time taken to complete a typical funding round from 18 weeks to a matter of days. With a flat fee of £1,600, the firm charges significantly less than the £3,000 – £20,000 typically demanded by lawyers for fundraising.

The London-based firm was founded by serial entrepreneur and former head of BBC iPlayer Anthony Rose and serial investor Laurent Laffy, whose portfolio includes companies such as, Secret Escapes, Graze and CultBeauty.
