Seed Capital

Money used for the initial market research and/or operations for a company. Seed money is vitally important because, without it, a company can hardly come into being, let alone become successful. It may come from a loan, and initial public offering, or from another source. For example, it is famously said that Ross Perot established Electronic Data Systems with $1,000 in personal savings; in this case, Perot's savings account contained his seed money. See also: Seed round.

Our DAF process is precisely the sort of incremental green shift that we were founded to implement, and I believe it is an excellent example of what a green shift really is - by reducing inefficiencies for livestock and poultry processing facilities, we are helping to reduce consumption of virgin natural resources, we are helping to reduce waste disposal expenses and the impact on the environment of that disposal, and we are doing it by helping our clients increase their bottom lines for no up front capital expenditure.
