Title: Pre-IPO investing
Post by: zovall on November 20, 2020, 12:39:41 PM
A few sites that facilitate this process are:
https://equityzen.com/
https://forgeglobal.com/
https://www.spaceangels.com/

They charge a bunch of fees and your money is tied up.

Anyone here have experience investing in companies before they before public via these brokers or others?

Note that you need to have $1 million in assets to quality.

Yes, I think you need to qualify as an Accredited Investor (https://www.investopedia.com/terms/a/accreditedinvestor.asp).
- Net worth (excluding primary residence) of $1m
OR
- Annual income over $200k or Joint Annual income (a couple) over $300k

There are some deals that require you to be a Qualified Purchaser which requires you to have $5mil in investments (https://www.fool.com/investing/2018/02/14/what-is-a-qualified-purchaser.aspx).

But the vast majority require qualifying as an Accredited Investor.
