Never invest more than you can afford to lose. Startups and small businesses are hard, and even the best founders fail.
Startups either win big or go bankrupt. You could lose all your money. Consider them more like socially-good lottery tickets.
There is no secondary market, and it’s hard to price or re-sell your shares. You typically hold on to them for years before a return.
Your dollars help to create and grow companies, not line the pockets of Wall Street. That's often fulfilling.
Many companies have investor perks like VIP access to new products, store credits, or discounts. It’s all part of the experience.
Each company builds its own community, and you're part of it. You can help the companies in your portfolio succeed.
