Is private investing right for me?

Private investing offers high-risk opportunities for investors to diversify their portfolios with private companies.

Private investing offers investors opportunities to diversify their portfolios. With Netcapital, you can invest in companies that aren’t yet on the public stock market. You can even diversify your alternative investment portfolio by investing lower dollar amounts in more companies—something that can be difficult to do on your own. 

You don’t need to be super-rich or a professional investor to invest in startups. However, there may be limits on how much you may invest in a year. Each offering has a minimum investment amount, some of which are as low as $99. Keep in mind that most investors shouldn’t allocate more than a small portion of their total portfolio to early-stage companies. Learn more about the risks of this type of investing here.
