Approximately 6 million privately held companies in the target size range, version only 6,000 or so exchange-listed companies.  Market potential thus estimated to be 1,000 times the size of that for publicly traded companies.

Company selection.

Note: Negotiated terms will vary by company.  Returns to members are in no way guaranteed.  While Seaside carefully vets companies’ product or service demand, its Members must note that there is always a risk of company failure and loss of principal.
