Episode 207: Mutual Funds are Just One Way to Invest – How to Invest In Startups

You may have seen the news with big IPOs like Uber and you’re wondering how to invest in startups yourself. It’s a great question to be asking, especially since the majority of dental professionals keep their money safe in mutual funds. This is widely known as a fairly safe way to make a return on your investment with a relatively low risk. 

In this episode, founder and CEO of Kingscrowd, Chris Lustrino shares more about equity crowdfunding. No, this is not like Kickstarter. Ever since the JOBS Act approval, nearly anyone can invest in private companies. This provides more opportunity for people like you to invest in start-ups. Though investing in a start-up is risky, the return can be quite magnificent.

For far too long, only the wealthiest of the wealthy could invest in private companies and funds.  As such, the wealth gap continued to widen. Take Menlo Venture’s investment in Uber for example. They made 93x on their investment in just a few short years. But that was reserved for the upper echelon of accredited investors. Now even you can learn how to invest in startups with platforms like Kingscrowd that can provide guidance.
