Alice Neuhauser
CFO
Seismic Capital Company

Alice P. Neuhauser has a broad range of experience in financial management, establishment and oversight of corporate, legal and accounting procedures, and business development and strategic planning. From successfully developing a major commercial real estate project to assisting lenders in maximizing the value of distressed assets to managing the day-to-day operations of independent film companies, Neuhauser has demonstrated entrepreneurial success in maximizing effort and investment by finding opportunities to utilize both existing business structures and innovative constructs.

Over the course of her career, Neuhauser has managed project financing for motion pictures ranging in budget from $2 million to $100 million each, totaling over half a billion dollars. Such financings included some of the largest independently financed pictures including Terminator 2 and Cliffhanger. Subsequently, Neuhauser coordinated the bank financing of several produced pictures.

After many years in entertainment, Neuhauser was increasingly drawn to the entrepreneurial world of technology start-ups. She joined forces with Steven Weinstein and Eric White, collaborating on what would become Seismic Capital Company. Seismic acquires early-stage technology companies, financing and nurturing them through their development. After a lengthy process with lots of “you can’t do that” along the way, the partners decided to break the venture capital mold and use a Regulation A offering for their capital raise. This means there is no limit on 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.
