Help Us Reinvent the Funeral Business
We’ve shared our unique origin story with you many times. Two good friends, formerly design executives at Nike, came together with a new idea. Inspired by design thinking and the not-so-great experiences after the death of Keith’s father and David’s mum, we knew there was a better way.
Fueled by tech tools and human compassion, Solace Cremation is on a mission to bring an old-fashioned industry into the 21st century. We never want families to go through what we went through. Now, you can join us to help us revolutionize the funeral business to put the focus back where it belongs — on families.
Plant a seed, help us grow
Solace is a young brand with big ambitions. We think we are onto something with our business model and philosophy, but to expand to help more families, we need to raise more capital. As a startup, we’ve been nimble and looked to new ideas and out-of-the-box solutions. Our fundraising is no different.
We are carefully planning our growth and are looking for investors who share our passion for a better experience at the end of life. We have partnered with SeedInvest, a leading equity crowdfunding platform. We are proud to have been selected, as SeedInvest vets all applicants carefully and only accepts about 1 percent of those companies that apply.
Real people can make a difference
Traditional funding can be tough to land for first-time entrepreneurs. “The world of venture capital is famously exclusive, secretive and chummy,” says the Washington Post, and has been especially elusive for Black founders and people of color. VC funding went to only about 8,000 businesses last year. While that may sound like a lot, keep in mind there are nearly 6 million businesses in the U.S. The truth is, most startups fund themselves with savings, cash flow, crowdfunding and forms of debt.
By using SeedInvest, we are able to reach real people like you who want to make a difference and pool their money together, rather than relying only on traditional fundraising with all of its limitations and issues.
A better way
At Solace, we have always been about innovation and outside-of-the-box, consumer-focused thinking. If you believe in our mission, we hope you’ll join us in investing in the future.
