How do I make a return on my investment?

It is possible to make a return, but not guaranteed. Investing in private companies is risky.

The exit opportunities for the companies you invest in are determined on a case-by-case basis. If any of your companies do reach an exit and your investment is affected, we will notify you accordingly. Generally, there are two ways you can earn a return on your investment: 

  1. The company you invested in is acquired by another company. When this happens, investors may receive a pro-rata share of the sale price, which is determined on a case-by-case basis. 
  2. The company you invested in goes public. In this case, the securities you purchase may be listed on a public exchange and you can sell them on public markets. 

Unlike public stock, private securities are illiquid with reselling restrictions, including a one-year holding guideline. We recommend you read our educational materials for more information.
