Five Compelling Reasons to Start Venture Investing

January 26, 2021 | Ashley Brindamour

Today, there is no shortage of options for an investor to consider, with thousands of public equities to choose from and a bevy of apps that make trading as easy as a swipe. Private investments are increasingly popular for sophisticated portfolios, but options can be limited for many individual investors and deliver varying results. However, there is another asset class that can play an important role in your financial strategy, and it’s still missing from many seasoned investors’ portfolios. 

Enter venture capital. When you imagine the venture capital industry, you might immediately think “high risk,” “exclusive,” and “elite.” You might think of storied venture firms like Andreessen Horowitz, Sequoia Capital, or imagine the likes of Mark Cuban, Shark Tank, and decisions made in 10 minutes or less. 

While it’s true that this asset class is high-risk/high-reward, serious firms conduct far more diligence than TV would lead you to believe, and venture is no longer only available to the ultra-high-net-worth investor. In fact, this is an asset any individual accredited investor can own. You might be one of the millions of accredited investors still missing venture capital from their portfolios — but you have options.
