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 three 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. 
  3. The company you invested in could decide to distribute dividends. 

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.
