How You Can Invest In Startups (with $50)
Published on July 25, 2019
As experts like Robert Herjavec know, investing in startup companies can be one of the most profitable opportunities available today. With startups, you’re getting in at the earliest possible time.
That means you could get way more than you could get from the stock market.
Investing in startups used to be reserved for the mega-rich… the millionaires and billionaires of the world.
But thanks to a recent groundbreaking piece of legislation, the doors to this private market have been blown open.
As of today, any person above the age of 18 can invest in these incredible startup companies… and you don’t need tons of money to get started.
Here’s what you need to know:
Step 1: Transfer $50 into your checking account
Unlike most other types of investments where you need upwards of $2,500 and a verified brokerage account to get going, investing in startups is simple and affordable.
- You can do this without a broker.
- You can do this without completing a single piece of paperwork.
- You can do this with as little as $50.
In most cases, your investment comes directly out of your checking account!
So to get started, just transfer $50… $100… $500… however much you’d like… into a checking account of your choice.
Step 2: Find a startup that excites you!
Next, it’s time to figure out where you’d like to invest that $50.
Whether you’re into technology, health, entertainment, food… there are literally hundreds of thousands of startups available to anyone over the age of 18.
That’s far more opportunities than what you’ll find in the typical stock market — and dozens more startups are coming online every single week.
I’m talking about companies like…
People can’t buy shares of Instagram today — they’re not on the market. But you could’ve gotten in during the startup phase…
From their startup days to when Facebook bought them – the value of Instagram jumped 47,519%.
Anyone who was smart enough to invest even $50?
Well, they turned that $50 into $23,809.
$500? That would’ve turned into $238,090.
Or Uber. Now, this example is utterly exceptional — but get this:
If you had invested even $50 in Uber just a few years ago, you’d be sitting on $1.2 million today.
It’s completely absurd – and, of course, your $50 could have gone poof right into zero… but find a winner like Uber, and you’re set for life.
If you were to stick with conventional stocks, you can expect to need at least $2,500 just to open your brokerage account. Then, you have the usual (meager) 7% return per year to look forward to.
But with startup investing, it’s so much more affordable and lucrative to get started.
Just choose a startup that excites you, and it’s on to step 3.
Step 3: The Fun Part…
Once you’ve got your $50 ready — and once you’ve identified what kind of startup you want to begin with…
The next step is the fun part!
