Returns – Historically, venture capital has out-performed the S&P 500. An investment in a private company before it goes public has the potential to generate much larger returns than an investment in the same company after it is publicly traded.
Diversification – As an alternative asset class, venture investments are not directly correlated to the stock market. By nature, a diversified portfolio is a less risky portfolio.
Impact – Investing in early-stage, novel companies and ideas provides an opportunity to directly contribute to companies that are addressing the challenges in society, improving lives, and increasing productivity. It’s an opportunity to help shape the future by investing in technologies, products, and people you believe in.
