Seaside 88, LLC




Strategy: Seaside has a narrowly focused business of providing smaller companies with growth capital in the form of an upfront payment in return for a share of future monthly revenues until Seaside achieves a negotiated return on its investment. This built-in exit strategy allows Seaside to focus on privately held companies without a need to await liquidity from an IPO or buyout.


Seaside strives to select companies that will use the capital infusion to accelerate their revenue growth through product launches, sales force expansion, entry into new geographic markets, etc. Companies suffer no dilution of their equity, and the pre-money valuation of a company is not a sticking point in closing a transaction.


Managing Partners: William J. Ritger has 25+ years of professional equity research experience, and Denis M. ODonnell, MD, has 20+ years of life science corporate management, as well as medical and clinical experience. The two managing partners have invested in more than 200 private placements over the past 20 years.

Neither PBHFA nor TickerBuzz make investment recommendations, and no communication, through this website or in any other medium, should be construed as a recommendation for any security offered on or off this investment platform. Equity crowdfunding investments in private placements, and start-up investments in particular, are speculative and involve a high degree of risk, and those investors who cannot afford to lose their entire investment should not invest in start-ups. Companies seeking startup investments through equity crowdfunding tend to be in earlier stages of development, and their business model, products, and services may not yet be fully developed, operational, or tested in the public marketplace. There is no guarantee that the stated valuation and other terms are accurate or in agreement with the market or industry valuations. Additionally, investors may receive illiquid and/or restricted stock that may be subject to holding period requirements and/or liquidity concerns. In the most sensible investment strategy for start-up investing, start-ups should only be part of your overall investment portfolio. Further, the start-up portion of your portfolio may include a balanced portfolio of different start-ups. Investments in start-ups are highly illiquid, and those investors who cannot hold an investment for the long term (at least 5-7 years) should not invest.
