ATLANTA , Oct. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Greenwood has secured $3 million in seed funding from private investors as the first digital banking platform for Black and Latinx people and business owners. Greenwood features best-in-class online banking services and innovative ways of giving back to Black and Latinx causes and businesses.
History of the name "Greenwood"
Greenwood’s initial products are savings and spending accounts that come with a stunningly designed black metal debit card for customers who sign up by the end of the year. Advanced features like Apple, Samsung, and Android pay, virtual debit cards, peer-to-peer transfers, mobile check deposits, and free ATM usage in over 30,000 locations are offered with no hidden fees. Customers who invite their friends to open accounts receive cash awards as a thank you from Greenwood. All deposits are FDIC insured by a partner bank.
Additionally, Greenwood plans to work with brick and mortar minority-owned banks to provide deposits to help strengthen historically black banks
Greenwood has three key avenues to support Black and Latinx causes and businesses:
Our research found that ILGM is among the top reputable seed banks available that stand by their product by offering guaranteed germination and shipping across the United States.
The shipping guarantee (available only for premium shipping with tracking and insurance) covers the rare event of confiscation but requires photo proof of the undeliverable package. If you’re nervous about your package getting seized, MJ Seeds can offer you a comforting hand and replacement seeds when you need them.
Herbies Seeds may look like a simple store, but it’s got a great pitch: free gifts every time you purchase cannabis seeds, as well as bonus seeds for every 20 Euros spent. They also offer a sliding scale discount of 5, 10, or 15 percent off depending on how much you spend – 100, 200, or 400 EUR.
How Do Charges Show Up for Cannabis Seed Banks?
Lastly, check for soil variations, as not all strains grow alike and certainly not under standardized conditions.
Seedsman is one of the longest-lasting seed banks in the business that ship to the US. And surprisingly, still one of the best-reviewed – even by the likes of picky Reddit users. The company sells its own brand of cannabis seeds but also carries over 1,500 cannabis strains from 65 different seed banks across the world.
With promises of 40 percent off for special sales, it’s hard not to like MSNL, or Marijuana Seeds, NL, based in the Netherlands. Despite its faraway headquarters, the seed bank company ships to the U.S. and has been doing so since 1999. The designation as the “original seed bank” has earned the company a reputation for efficient shipping and fine seed genetics.
The seeds could be collectibles, or for research purposes, or for any other silly excuse, and you probably won’t be arrested for it.

The challenges small business owners face with their banking services can have a real impact on their business. According to a new survey conducted by Researchscape on behalf of Seed, one-third of small businesses aren’t provided with online and mobile bill-pay; that same percentage pays monthly, often hidden fees to their banks. Perhaps most surprising, 32 percent of survey respondents are not properly separating their personal and business bank accounts, which can lead to serious accounting, tax, and reporting challenges for business owners.
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to a recent survey, small businesses are falling through the cracks of the banking industry. Big banks don’t always offer the service small businesses need, and community banks don’t always provide the technology small business customers are looking for. Seed is providing an alternative to traditional banking by offering a full-service online banking service designed specifically for the 28 million small businesses in the US.
National study reveals big banks aren’t empowering small businesses; Seed’s banking app is designed exclusively for the modern small business
In response to these challenges, Seed provides a full suite of banking features built into easy-to-use, beautifully designed online app, including a Visa ® Business Debit card, free bill pay, transfers, mobile deposits, and electronic vendor payments via ACH or paper check.

“Traditional banks have struggled to take care of their small business customers because they only have two banking options to offer — consumer or enterprise. Consumer banking products don’t offer all of the features and service small businesses need, while enterprise offerings are unnecessarily complicated and expensive,” said Brian Merritt, co-founder and CEO of Seed. “Seed is solely focused on serving the small business community. We’re responding to the frustrations of small business owners by offering an alternative to the status quo — a complete online banking service designed just for them.”
In addition to standard banking services, Seed offers unique features and benefits designed for the small business owner:
