Here at Crowdability, Wayne and I like to keep a low profile.
For the last five years, we’ve just been quietly teaching ordinary investors like you how to make a fortune by investing in start-ups.
The professional investors in Silicon Valley don’t like that we’re encroaching on their turf. (As I mentioned in my article a couple weeks ago, many of them initially told us that Crowdability was a “terrible idea.”) But since we kept a low profile, they left us alone.
But our cover just got blown, and I think it’s turned Silicon Valley against us for good…
You see, a new report just came out, and it proves that the Silicon Valley elite are about to see their profits evaporate...
And it’s all because of investors like you!
You’re Beating Professional Investors by 300%
Last week, WeFunder.com — one of many “funding platforms” that connect investors like you to start-up deals — released its five-year returns to the public.
Since 2013, investors on its platform have earned annual unrealized returns of 53%.
In other words, if you’d invested in the deals featured on WeFunder, you could have pocketed gains of 53% each year.
Not only is that enough to double your money every 18 months or so, but it’s enough to outperform the very best Venture Capitalists in Silicon Valley…
You see, according to research firm Cambridge Associates, over the same five-year investment period, the top U.S. Venture Capitalists earned just 15% per year.
In other words, investors like you could have beaten the professionals by about 300%!
Let’s take a look at a few of the WeFunder deals that helped investors make so much money.
Zenefits — Zenefits builds software to help companies manage Human Resources.
If you’d invested just $1,000 into Zenefits when it first raised money on WeFunder, you’d now be sitting on $206,100.
And if you’d invested $5,000 instead, you’d be sitting on more than $1 million.
Checkr — Checkr is a tech start-up that provides a quick, easy way to do background checks.
If you’d invested $1,000 into it when it was raising money on WeFunder, your $1,000 would now be worth more than $34,000.
Ginkgo Bioworks — Ginkgo is a biotech start-up focusing on genetic engineering.
This one hasn’t skyrocketed yet like the first two start-ups I just showed you…
But still, you could already have made more than 4x your money on it…
More specifically, a $1,000 investment into this one would now be worth $4,370.
And I’m Not Cherry-Picking…
Those are just a few of the start-ups on WeFunder you could have invested in.
And to prove that I’m not “cherry-picking” with these examples, check this out:
If you’d invested in every one of WeFunder’s deals from 2013 (that’s 42 different start-ups), your overall returns would be 5.57x…
So you’d have made more than five times your money.
Don’t Forget To Do This One Thing On Mondays…
But here’s the thing:
Unless you’d been reading Crowdability, it’s unlikely that you would have known about sites like WeFunder or invested in its deals.
That’s because, without Crowdability, you’d have to keep track of this market on your own.
You see, right when we started the company, Wayne and I invested a great deal of time and money building special software…
This software gathers the highest-quality start-up deals from all over the Internet — not just from WeFunder, but from Republic, SeedInvest, StartEngine, and many others — and it aggregates them into a single place.
And the best part is, every Monday morning at 11am EST, we send you a single email so you can see the best of these new deals for yourself.
That’s why Crowdability members like you had the chance to earn 300% more than the professionals in Silicon Valley…
And that’s why we believe new members will earn big returns, too.
So be sure to keep an eye on your inbox Monday mornings at 11am EST!
