My new hedge fund is going to be concentrated mostly in publicly-traded equites with a little bit of cryptocurrencies and even some investments in some crowdfunded start ups. I’ll be buying crowdfunding assets starting on Republic.co, the first and only crowdfunding platform built from the ground up to be SEC compliant.
I discovered Republic.co when the CEO reached out to me and took the time to fly out to NM to meet with me. I’ve spent the last ten months getting involved with the company and getting to know their system of vetting start ups by understanding their business plans, ensuring the start ups raising money have some real assets, making sure some of the money that companies raise on the Republic.co crowdfunding platform stays in escrow until they meet certain well-defined milestones of growth and more. I’ve actually become good friends with Kendrick Nguyen, the CEO of Republic.co and have joined their advisory and I have an equity position in Republic.co itself.
The point of all of this is that starting in 2019, I’m going to be investing some of my new hedge fund’s capital into some of the start ups on Republic.co that I think have the potential to revolutionize their industries (or the world of course) and I’ll be sending out Trade Alerts to TradingWithCody.com subscribers to let them know whenever I do so.
And since Republic.co is an open crowdfunding platform, all of you dear TradingWithCody.com subscribers can join me when I invest in a start up on Republic.co if you have your own Republic.co account.
I’ve asked Kendrick to assign us a point person at Republic.co to answer any questions and help TradingWithCody.com subscribers open up your own Republic.co account. But to be clear, opening up and investing in a start up on Republic.co is easier than getting an online stock brokerage account.
You guys surely know that investing in start ups on Republic.co is much more risky than buying Google and Apple and other publicly-traded stocks I buy, and I won’t be investing more than a tiny bit of the hedge fund’s capital in crowdfunding assets and you shouldn’t either.
But obviously, there could be some huge upside if we can find some true Revolutionary Investment-type companies very early on when they’re in the start up phase, and that’s why I’m going to diversify a bit into this asset class, starting with companies on Republic.co.
It’s an incredible time to be an investor. Let’s keep rocking.
