CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Padlist, an online real estate database platform for renters and landlords, has launched its equity crowdfunding round with New York-based SeedInvest.
Co-Founders Blake Van Leer and Lindsay Van Leer have over 30 years of combined experience in the real estate industry. During that time, they learned firsthand of the challenges and demands within the rental industry. Today, the Van Leers, along with Chief Editor and Brand Strategist Kathy Ireland, and Creative Director Michael Schatz, are developing an easier, faster and innovative way for renters and landlords to connect. "Our goal is to significantly improve the rental process by combining local experts, data transparency, AI and drones through our Padlist smart-technology platform. Padlist will be the company to solve the pain point for both renters and landlords using our one single platform. We are excited to announce that we have listed on SeedInvest to create an opportunity to finance our growth through new partnerships," says Blake Van Leer.
SeedInvest is a unique leader in its industry as they are a performance-based fundraiser. Only listing highly-vetted investment opportunities that go through their vigorous due diligence process, SeedInvest accepts only 1% of companies that apply. "Kathy, Blake and I have had the advantage of researching and experiencing different approaches to fundraising through either our own companies or as advisors. We chose crowdfunding because we believe in the power of the crowd. We listed on SeedInvest because they are your first, true investor as they offer their invaluable time, expertise and resources to create a successful campaign as well as use of their network to maximize your reach," says Lindsay Van Leer.
"Selecting the crowdfunding methodology, versus a traditional VC fundraise, empowers Padlist, investors and clients to grow while building strategic partnerships with accredited investors, and of equal importance, our loyal customers, colleagues, stakeholders and friends of this stellar company. Securing the approval from SeedInvest's leaders is a powerful testament and validation to the Padlist brand. We are all honored to have the opportunity to develop something completely new in this space. We are joyously working hard to realize the vision of Padlist: 'The smartest way to find and list pads'," says Kathy Ireland, Chair, CEO and Chief Designer of kathy ireland® Worldwide.
The crowdfunding campaign will allow Padlist to continue building its smart technology platform and expand its local experts to offer its services nationally.
