SeedLegals interview Keepabl's Founder

Digging into our backstory, funding, coronavirus & more!

SeedLegals needs no introduction!  They’re the UK’s #1 closer of funding rounds, helping with investment, EIS/SEIS, EMI options and more.  A growth SaaS business themselves, supported by leading investors, Seedlegals have transformed startup funding – in just three years they now help more UK companies raise investment than anyone else.
