Collaboration Asset Management is

a part of The NextSeed Group

Since 2015, the NextSeed Group has been at the forefront of rapidly changing financial markets to connect community and capital in diverse and meaningful ways. A pioneer in investment crowdfunding, NextSeed has evolved into a technology-driven investment banking practice offering place-based investment opportunities that align with its mission to build community through financial markets. In late 2019, NextSeed combined with Collaboration Capital, a family-focused wealth management and asset management investment firm built around ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing. The NextSeed Group now offers forward-thinking investment banking and investment management services for retail and institutional clients.
Our mission is to build prosperous communities by making meaningful investments accessible to everyone, which we take to heart in every business decision we make.
