According to the US Census, there are an estimated 1,150,000 households that earn over $350,000 a year. There is an estimated 250,000 active angel investors involved in structured groups and actively considering investment in early stage companies as a means to create wealth in their diversified portfolio. And if we assume there are at least 150,000 of the wealthiest that have too much money to be angel investors...they don't invest directly into companies, they invest in the funds that fund the companies; what keeps the remaining 750,000 from becoming angel investors?

This show will explore the following:

  • How the Jobs Act and security regulation changes will impact investors - accredited and non-accredited; angel and non-angel investors
  • What are the real issues that keep these affluent men and women from diversifying their investment portfolio into private equity?
  • What can be done to shift their attention and dollars from traditional stock market investments to private stock investments, and why they will want to?

Are you an investor that is tired of the volatility and unpredictability of the stock market? Are you frustrated that you have little influence to affect the management or operation of that public company? Have you realized that the public stock market is actually pretty risky and the overall return on investment isn't that great?  Then learning how to invest in private companies, purchasing shares in a company before it goes public, while the valuation is still low, could be the wealth creation strategy for you.   Tune in to learn how to join the world of compassionate capitalism.
