Seismic Capital Company
Alice P. Neuhauser has extensive experience in financial management, setting up and overseeing corporate, legal and accounting procedures, as well as business development and strategic planning. Whether successfully developing a major commercial real estate project, helping lenders maximize the value of distressed assets, or managing the day-to-day operations of independent film companies, Neuhauser has demonstrated entrepreneurial success by maximizing efforts and investments by finding opportunities to use both innovative business structures and constructions.
Over the course of his career, Neuhauser has managed project financing for films ranging in budget from $2 million to $100 million each, totaling over half a billion dollars. These fundings included some of the biggest independently funded images, including Terminator 2 and Cliffhanger. Subsequently, Neuhauser coordinated the bank financing of several images produced.
After many years in entertainment, Neuhauser was increasingly drawn to the entrepreneurial world of tech start-ups. She partnered with Steven Weinstein and Eric White, collaborating in what would become Seismic Capital Company. Seismic acquires technology start-ups, finances them and supports them throughout their development. After a long process with a lot of “you can’t do that” along the way, the partners decided to break the venture capital mold and use a Settlement A offering for their capital raise. This means that there is no limit to the number of investors and it allows non-accredited investors to participate, democratizing access to an asset class usually reserved for the wealthy and connected.
