seam is a platform born strictly of the philosophy that social interactions
in person are more valuable than those experienced online. seam's purpose is to get users to a social event with the least possible amount of effort.  We need a platform that provides more to its users than images and likes.  seam is that platform.  No followers.  No Likes.  Just real experience with those you want to share them with.  


We make it simple, we make it easy, and we make it social

We have been robbed.  Social media has stolen the “social” out of social interactions.  Striking up conversations with others is responded with awkward stares, dating has moved into a random matching system based on algorithms and horizontal swipes, and a night out equals a broadcast in pursuit of instant gratification and likes.  seam is not a social media platform, it’s a tool.  We will not glue users to their phones and promote unconscious scrolling of feeds.  We provide users a tool to get exactly where they want to go, with exactly who they want to go with.   

With your help as an investor we can take seam from a basic prototype with limited functionality to a downloadable platform. Up to this point we have relied on detailed wireframes to convey our vision. We have used these very wireframes in this campaign to convey a clearer vision than our current prototype could. Multiple functions must be further developed in order to be competitive in this space. This means adding additional talented developers that can help create the vision we present in this campaign. Join us on this journey. 

It’s time to get off the phone and put the “social” back into social interactions.

Already know where you want to go?  Great!  Let’s get you there with the right people.  seam is connecting you to your friends like never before.  Your connections, the ones you constantly communicate and share interests with, will help provide the content on seam.  Their posts go directly to you, after all, they’re the ones you explores the city with.

Let’s find something new to do tonight.  seam’s map shows you all the events, hot locations, and local spots in your area.  Better yet, inviting a friend is only a simple two taps away.  No matter where you are, there is no longer an excuse for not being able to find something to do


The phone itself is not what glues us to our screens and takes away from our experiences, it’s the isolating apps we use on them. It’s time for an app that encourages our human interactions instead of taking away from them.  seam has adopted a few simple tactics to make this shift.

We're here to be social

It's no secret, we're social creatures.  It's a joy to socialize with friends and meet others.  Unfortunately, we've moved away from this.  We plan on changing the numbers and reversing the statistics.  Currently, we are not spending very much time socializing. American Novelist and Harvard Graduate Teddy Wayne shows just how we've moved away from being social in an article for the New York Times in 2015 entitled, "The death of the House Party". Wayne refers to  the Bureau of Labor Statistics, to show younger generations are less social than ever. According to the Bureau During the Obama Era, 11% of High School seniors spent more than 6 hours a week at social gatherings.  Wayne goes on to explain how alarming this is considering the number of peers these high schoolers are surrounded by. If we look further into this new form of isolation, this statistic means 89% of seniors are spending less than 30 minutes a day socializing.  Isolation is not beneficial, we want to share ideas, become closer to one another, and understand those around us better.  More time socializing is more time contributing to the human experience that we all share.

Abandon the follower system

A connection is something much deeper than a follower, it's a shared experience between multiple people. Creating a culture around connections is what will drive our platform. Currently, the majority of the social platforms we use in our day to day lives are built upon a system of following another user.  This feature deters from building meaningful connections and promotes the stale interaction of simply watching from afar. We find followers to be a shallow and unfulfilling phenomenon and therefore have abandoned the idea.

Stay true to our philosophy

It may be radical to rid ourselves of features such as likes and followers, but we embrace it nonetheless. You may be asking yourself, why would a social platform do this when it has proven to be effective in keeping people hooked to their networks? This is the very reason we are ridding ourselves of features that keep users unconsciously addicted to nonsense. We don’t believe in creating a bottomless platform that our users will consistently check every waking minute. Instead, our deeply embedded belief is that social interactions in person are much more valuable than those experienced online.

We need to stop the addiction. This all too familiar situation of going out for the night only to be surrounded by faces that are glued to mobile applications, stuck online, attached to “social networks” and completely isolated from the social occasion is not an accident. While at an axios conference in November Sean Parker, former president of Facebook stated that they had one thing in mind when creating their application.  “How do we consume as much of [the user’s] time and conscious attention as possible?”  So the next time you find yourself wondering how great the night would have been if the people at the party were not on their phone, you can attribute what you’re experiencing to the creation of the platforms that were designed to keep users addicted. This is the void in human interaction.

Facebook

Facebook is based solely on connecting online.  The nature of the platform took our interactions and transferred them into the virtual world.

Instagram

Based on the follower system, Instagram is solely dedicated to uploading images and videos.  The search for likes and comments creates a chase for the drug that is instant virtual gratification.

Twitter

Twitter, the fast paced news and social networking service, encourages users to constantly refresh their feeds.


Snapchat

Snapchat is built upon posts only lasting 24 hours.  The temporary nature of content creates a need for users to share everything in their day-to-day lives.

All of these networks promise the same thing: connectivity.  There is a fundamental problem in the market of  “Social Media”.


We have forgotten how to be social.  We can change this together.

When you invest you are betting the company’s future value will exceed $2.5M.

There is a big difference between us and the others. We want to create a platform that we and our investors would use. This desire has shaped our approach to funding. Instead of approaching accredited investors, those that make $200,000 per year or have a net worth of over $1,000,000, we have decided to approach those who will actually be using the platform. With the help of StartEngine we have the ability to raise capital and offer shares of our company to anyone who is interested in the platform. This is a big change and is a completely new approach to how companies are raising capital.

Since anyone can invest in seam, it is truly a platform that relies on the interest of potential users to fund it.  No other platform has taken this approach.  We are proud to say that among our competition, we will be the most inclusive by making users investors, and investors user.

Development of the platform is the most important aspect in order for the company to succeed.  We plan on using the majority of the funding towards acquiring an adequate development team to continue perfecting the platform.

Without proper marketing material, the platform will not shock the market or the users it needs. Promotional videos, advertisements, and other branding materials are necessary in order for the market to understand the platform's purpose and for the application to grow its user base.

Along with the proper development and branding, entering the market must be done in a strategic and timely manner. Once the platform is ready to be released to the public, the rollout will be just as important as steps prior. Promotional events and sponsorships will require the remaining capital.


For an investor, the main reason to invest in any company is to potentially receive a return.  You are investing based on the potential you see in the company, and more importantly, you are looking for our company to gain value in the coming years. So how can the value of the company grow, and more importantly, how can you see a return on your investment?

Before carrying out a proper exit strategy, the company must gain a large number of users to generate revenue.  Our plan is to gain users through the use of strategic marketing and unique functionality.  As a company, we believe that we have both.  We gear our marketing tactics primarily on acquiring younger users.  We believe that those part of younger generations will carry the platform forward much like the platforms that have come before us. Functionally, seam is geared towards acquiring new users and making it easy for them to introduce their friends to the experience.  How do we incentivize users to include those they know?  By basing our platform on social interaction in person. Attending a local art gallery or a pop-up clothing release will be something users can locate on seam, and more importantly, attend with their friends.  Once we are able to acquire consistent users, generating revenue through the platform will be the next step.

Being an events based platform changes our approach to revenue. Traditionally, social platforms focus on their abilities to advertise to users in order to gain revenue. We take a different approach and see our platform moving into ticketing and promotion. seam plans to provide a one-stop shop for our users to sell tickets to their own personal events, and purchase tickets for larger public ones. By diversifying ourselves in this way, we believe our potential for success increases. We are not simply looking to advertise to our users.  Instead, we want to provide them with a necessary tool. We plan on taking a small percentage of ticket purchases as a stream of revenue, as well as providing subscription-based services for businesses and promotion companies. Generating revenue does not stop at ticketing. We also plan on expanding into partnerships with other companies that will provide transportation for our users. This benefits our potential partners and our platform by contributing to the overall user experience.

If the company is successful, there are a few ways an investor could see a return.


One possible outcome is that the company becomes publicly traded, at which point the shares bought through StartEngine can then be sold on the stock market like any other share of stock.  Another possibility for the company is that seam is bought by a bigger company.  If seam is bought, the shares you hold will also be bought by the company purchasing Seam Tech, Inc.  If Seam Tech, Inc. does not become a subsidiary or conduct a share repurchase, you will have the choice of continuing to hold your shares  Holding shares long term not only allows for potential growth of value, but could also grant you cash if the company pays out dividends in the future.  If you are a short term investor, you may list your shares on StartEngine’s secondary market after one year of holding. Do note that StartEngine's secondary market has low volume and does not guarantee a buyer for any shares that you list.

We are deeply appreciative of all our investors.  For those that contribute more than $500, we would like to send you a gift as a token of our appreciation.

Dear Potential Investor,


At this point in the campaign I would like to shift away from how our company plans on changing the future of social media and would like to focus on the team itself. It gives me no greater pleasure than to work side by side with individuals who show an unquantifiable amount of dedication to this project. I have no doubt in my mind that they will continue to show this dedication to you as an investor.


seam is more than a cool idea to us, it is our passion. We are self taught designers, coders, and entrepreneurs. When most look to utilize the resources they have, we are forced to create them.  Each member of seam is from the inner city of Los Angeles, home to high crime rates and low income communities. With minimal accredited investors, the only option for our team is to rely on each other and look inward when trying to solve a problem.  These circumstances have not hindered our aspirations, but have only fueled them. I speak for my team when I say that we find great joy in creating a revolutionary platform from a community most people forget.


We understand that in order to break through the next barrier, we need more capital. If you are reading this, this may be your first experience with investing. If so, I am glad that our platform is your introduction.  You may be from the same background as us, and if you are, I hope you receive more than just ownership of this company, but also gain the knowledge on opportunities that have never been accessible.  I realize that knowledge is what drives progress. With the help of StartEngine, the playing field is now even.  It is my hope that you will share this knowledge with others in an effort to drive forward progress in your communities, just as we are. If this is not your first time investing, I hope that you approach our company with the same expectations and qualifications as your other investments. Your feedback will only help us in perfecting our platform and continuing to grow.


On behalf of the team here at seam, I welcome you as an investor and look forward to all the feats we will accomplish together.


Best,

Adrian Ceron

7 Days Left!

over 1 year ago

We are now officially in the last week of the campaign! I would personally like to thank everyone who has contributed to the campaign so far. To all 34 investors who have become part of the Seam Team, your contributions have provided more than just capital.  You have displayed your belief in our platform which provides our team with the support to continue past any obstacles we face. We began this campaign unsure of the outcome, so reaching almost 200% of our minimum goal with a week to go is a great reinforcement to push forward and break past any boundaries that are in our way. We seek to change the social media landscape, and with your help, we are certain that it is only a matter of time before we do. If you are still on the fence about investing in our platform, it is my hope that you see the adaptability of our team, progress we have made, and the quality of our work as a gauge for the future.

Keeping up the momentum!

over 1 year ago

Since our last update we have seen our percentage grow from 77% to our minimum goal to 85%! We are looking forward to keeping up this momentum! With that being said we would like to continue providing our potential investors with more detail about the functionality of seam. Here, we are showcasing how you receive an invite using Zone.



Yes, it really is just one simple step to accept. It should not be any harder than that.

We're almost there!

over 1 year ago

Some more good news! We are now 77% of the way to our first milestone of 10K. We are almost there and are looking for a few more investors to take us over the edge. Along with this good news I would like to show you a little more of the platform so you can get a better understanding of just how it is going to work. 

This is the zone.

Here you will have the ability to view all your seams, and more importantly, the friends that are within your radius. We have taken the formality out of inviting a friend somewhere.  First, see if they’re around. Second, send them a chat with a location. Finally, hangout!  Once they have accepted your invite, both of you will see the pin on your map connecting you to the place of interest.

Simple, right? It shouldn’t be more difficult than that.
