Profit From Silicon Valley's Best Deals

By Wayne Mulligan, on Thursday, July 21, 2016

Matt and I founded Crowdability with a simple mission:

To help everyday investors find and profit from the best start-up investments.

Initially, we compiled a list of the best sources for deals.

You see, there are hundreds of “funding platforms” out there (platforms are special websites that connect investors like you to start-up deals)…

And only a small handful of them consistently feature high-quality deals.

But even among that small group of top-notch platforms, one stands out:

The platform I’m referring to features the most promising deals and the best investors, and it helps start-ups raise the most money.

It’s called AngelList.

Unfortunately, AngelList only allows accredited investors to use its platform.

So if you weren’t worth at least $1 million, or didn’t earn more than $200,000 a year, you couldn’t get access to AngelList’s network.

Until now.

With the full support of AngelList, a group of former AngelList executives just launched a new funding platform…

And they launched it specifically for everyday investors like you.


The name of the platform is Republic.

It was founded by two former AngelList executives: Ken Nguyen and Paul Menchov.

Before launching Republic, Ken was the General Counsel at AngelList. And prior to that, he held senior roles at various private equity funds and “family offices.”

Paul, on the other hand, has a technical background. At AngelList, he was a lead engineer, responsible for building out the company’s infrastructure.

And with the financial backing of AngelList, Ken and Paul are now bringing AngelList-quality deals to regular investors like you.

Here’s why this has us so excited...

Silicon Valley’s Best Deals

Since its inception, AngelList has consistently featured remarkable investment opportunities.

For instance, if you’d been an early user of the site, you could have backed one of the most profitable start-up investments of all time: Uber.

Uber is a new type of transportation company, and its growth has been phenomenal.

If you’d invested just $1,000 in Uber when it was first listed on AngelList, your investment would now be worth more than $6 million.

More recently, AngelList offered the opportunity to invest in an early-stage tech start-up called Cruise Automation. GM just acquired Cruise for $1 billion.

As I mentioned earlier, those deals were limited to wealthy, accredited investors.

But now, thanks to Republic, you’ve got the chance to back the next Uber or Cruise.

Deals You Can Back Right Now

Republic just launched this week, but it already has an impressive roster of start-up investment opportunities.

But don’t forget: you can’t rely on a platform to do all of the hard work for you—you still need to do your own homework and due diligence.

In other words, it’s not enough to identify a “good” platform and then blindly invest in every deal it lists. There are too many deals to choose from, and choosing randomly is a recipe for losing your shirt.

To help you narrow down all of your investment options to just the very best ones—the ones with the most upside potential and the least risk—we’ve built a suite of services for you, from education to research tools.
