What are the benefits of investing in startups?
Startup investing offers the potential to earn high returns that are generally uncorrelated with the market. While the majority of startups will not yield these returns (as they often yield none at all), the ones that do can realize returns unlike any other asset class. As part of a balanced portfolio strategy, startup investing could provide an additional investment option.
Additionally, investing in an early-stage company often provides the opportunity to have an impact on the company’s development and direction at an early stage.
